ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Messages questioning religion are popping up across the city of Albuquerque just weeks before the biggest religious holidays in the world.

The Freedom from Religion group sponsoring the billboards said they are paid through next month.

Even if some find them controversial, the group said they arent about to take the billboards down.

Many times religion is a crutch that doesn't do as much good as people think it does, Freedom of Religion member Ron Herman said. We paid for the space, just like people paid for their space in newspapers advertising their services."

The colorful messages are on 10 billboards around Albuquerque. One billboard reads Imagine No Religion and Keep Religion out of Government.
