Secularist billboard in North Carolina

A group called Charlotte Atheists and Agnostics has put up a billboard for the month of July with a subtle, but unmistakable secular message.  Located on the Billy Graham Parkway (which the group says is a coincidence), the billboard simple repeats a phrase from the original Pledge of Allegiance, before religion was added in 1954.    Some are displeased with the implications:

"They want to exclude religion from the public arena altogether," said Mark Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League. "The whole message of the billboard undermines who we are in America."

These billboard campaigns are becoming common, we had our own here in San Diego several months ago.  While they won't change anybody's opinions, they do remind the public that the religious hold large segments of the public is weak.
