Re "Atheists 'Out of the Closet' in new billboard campaign" (Our Region, Dec. 2): For those of us who question religion, these billboards confirm that we are not alone. They are expressing thoughts that can be awkward to share with strangers. Did the Sacramento Bee question those "Judgment Day is Coming" billboards with the same gusto as these are getting? One single religion and talk of its God permeates many parts of our culture and government functions. This is surprising, as there are at least 21 different religions practiced in the United States today, according to Wikipedia. Worldwide, the number is almost 100, not counting all the long lost gods, such as Saturn. With every church displaying some kind of proclamation, it's great to see the brave statements on these billboards. This is especially true for those of us who do not belong to any organized religion.
