The Utah Coalition of Reason just put up a billboard in Salt Lake City, and despite its harmless message, it’s almost certainly going to generate controversy:
… These words appear on a prominent billboard in Salt Lake City on the north side of Highway 201, a half mile west of Exit 11/Highway 172. Visible to westbound traffic and on the right-hand side of the road, it faces east. It will remain up through the run of the Utah State Fair. The 14 by 48 foot billboard features the words superimposed over an image of a blue sky and white clouds. It was placed by the Utah Coalition of Reason with $3,678.00 in funding from the United Coalition of Reason.
Reaching out to the like minded isn’t the only goal of the effort: “We hope people will discover that we are a legitimate part of the community,” said Elaine Ball, director of the Utah Coalition of Reason. “Folks like us live throughout Utah. We’re your family and friends, your neighbors and coworkers, and maybe even the person sitting next to you in church.”
