Atheists will meet in OKC in 2018

America Atheists will hold their 2018 National Convention in Oklahoma City, March 30 to April 1. To stir up news coverage, the group has leased billboards, including two in Tulsa. One urges Tulsans to “Just skip church. It’s all fake news.”

“Everyone knows that the stories we’re told in church aren’t the truth,” said David Silverman, president of American Atheists. “People ignore that fact because they enjoy the community, the friendship, and the traditions that go along with religion.”

Atheists believe in a doctrine that states that God doesn’t exist and that Jesus Christ is not the Son of God.
