Re "Atheists 'Out of the Closet' in new billboard campaign" (Our Region, Dec. 2): After a Sacramento area atheist group launched its billboard campaign, some have complained that the billboards are proselytizing atheism. Others have asked why this campaign is necessary. It's necessary for people like me. When I was 15, I realized that I didn't believe in a god or gods. I spent years thinking something was wrong with me. I searched for a higher power or religion that fit me, thinking just hadn't found the right one yet. This campaign is needed so that people who dont believe won't feel so alone and will know they have a community, too. The billboard campaign is not an affront to religion. It's an affirmation that not believing in a higher power is OK.
