You could call it a Biblical battle of the billboards.

In September, an Atheist group called the Bluegrass Coalition of Reason, put up a billboard on Lexington's busy New Circle Road that questioned the existence of God.  It read, "Don't believe in God?  Join the club."

On Monday, the Lafayette Church of the Nazarene in Lexington but up a billboard of its own on New Circle Road.  It reads, "We believe in God.  Join the right club."

The Church is holding a 'We believe in God' rally on Tuesday.  Members plan on handing out bumper stickers with the same message as the billboard.

Always nice to see churches spending so much money in charitable work... I'm sure this will be a great help to the poor and hungry.
