Story by Michelle Alimoradi and Bob Hines
For the next month, people in Minneapolis and St. Paul see billboards paid for by the groups Minnesota Atheists and American Atheists. Both boards have an eye-catching bright yellow background and image of a baby. One says “Please don’t indoctrinate me with religion. Teach me to think for myself.”
And the other says “We are all born without belief in gods. Learn how to be a born-again atheist.” The project leader on this advertising effort for the Minnesota Atheists is Eric Jayne. The president of Minnesota Atheists is August Berkshire. They talked with Michelle Alimoradi and Bob Hines on the KFAI Weekly News.
