Posted on February 27, 2018February 27, 2018 by PJ SlingerPhotos and cartoons (March 2018) FFRF has placed two billboards with messages saying “In Science We Trust” in the greater Atlanta metro area. The messages went up on Cobb Parkway billboards in January and February. One billboard is 14 feet tall and 48 feet wide and the other is 10 feet by 36 feet. The messages will rotate to new spots in the Atlanta region in March. FFRF Member Jack Egger kindly paid for the signs, which depict an astronaut suspended in outer space to illustrate its slogan. “If all of us had faith in science and humanism, we would improve life on Earth so fast,” says Egger. “By giving up supernaturalism, we all can have a more fulfilling life, with a brighter, more peaceful and predictable future.” A billboard that went up Feb. 1 in St. Paul, Minn., pokes fun at former congresswoman Michele Bachmann, following an interview where she said she was going to pray for guidance on whether to run for Sen. Al Franken’s vacated Senate seat. The billboard features a cartoon image of God with the words, “Michele Bachmann — No.” The ad could be the idea of thegoodlordabove.com, based on the cartoon image that the satire site uses to portray God. The site’s owner(s) did not reply to questions about their involvement in the billboard campaign. In late December, Bachmann told televangelist Jim Bakker she would pray in search of an answer on whether to run. “The question is: Am I being called to do this now?” On Feb. 3, two days after the billboard went up, she said, “I tried to have my ears open and hear what God was saying to me, and I considered it for quite a long time. It became very clear to me that I wasn’t hearing any call from God to do this.” Bachmann was elected to Congress in 2007 to represent Minnesota’s 6th District. She was in office until 2015.
