WYOMING, Mich. (AP) -

A billboard alongside a highway in western Michigan is spreading the message that religion is something people can live without.

The billboard went up Monday and is to remain in place through October 27th along U.S.-131 in the Grand Rapids suburb of Wyoming.

It's sponsored by the Center for Inquiry and carries the message "Millions of Americans are living happily without religion."

Jennifer Beahan is assistant director of the group's Michigan chapter and says secular people need support and the knowledge that they aren't alone.

The campaign also includes ads on billboards and mass transit systems in Indianapolis, New York and Washington, D.C. Other Michigan locations are Interstate 94 in Kalamazoo and I-75 in the Detroit suburb of Madison Heights.
