Atheist billboard refutes notion U.S. founded on Christian religion



In an elegant demonstration of a historical truth, Atheists in California are refuting the notion that the U.S. was founded upon the Christian religion.


On Friday, Backyard Skeptics, a California based group catering to humanists, rational thinkers, atheists and agnostics, held a press conference to publicize a new billboard refuting the claim made by some that the U.S. is founded upon the Christian religion.

The Treaty of Tripoli, 1797 - Signed Unanimously by Congress
