Atheists Demand Town Remove These Decades-Old ‘Welcome’ Signs — but One Group is Pushing Back

A battle is brewing over two signs that are posted in the city of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, after an atheist activist group demanded their removal and an opposing legal firm pushed back in an effort to keep them in place.

The two signs in question read, “The Churches of Oconomowoc Welcome You.” The mention of churches on government property led the Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist activist group, to send a letter to Mayor David Nold in May, demanding their removal. Atheists argued that the signs favor Christianity.
