PASCAGOULA, MS - Billboards reaching out to atheists, humanists, freethinkers and agnostics are up in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi.

They bear one of two messages: "Good without a god? So are we!" and "Don't believe in a god? You're not alone!"

At the bottom is the web address GulfCoastCoR.org, for the Gulf Coast Coalition of Reason.

Coordinators Amanda Scott and Buz Ryland describe two goals: reaching out to like-minded people and letting others know that nontheistic folks are part of their communities.

The Washington-based United Coalition of Reason is paying over $11,000 to put the billboards up for four weeks in Mobile, Alabama; Pascagoula, Mississippi; and two sites in Pensacola, Florida.

It's part of a national campaign. Louisiana and Georgia are among 37 states where billboards went up earlier.
