Atheist group puts up sign calling religion 'myth and superstition'

An atheist group is continuing its tradition of putting up a sign in the Illinois capitol that says there are "no gods."

The sign goes on to say that "Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds."

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has been displaying the signs during the holidays for the past seven years.

Back in 2008, FFRF put up the sign in protest of a decision to allow a religious group to put up a nativity scene in the capitol.

Government officials say it can't be taken down because it falls within the right to free speech, and they can't discriminate against others' beliefs.
