Atheist bus signs are back

DES MOINES (AP) -- An atheist group's advertising signs will soon be put back on Des Moines-area buses after controversy prompted officials to remove them.

The Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority decided Friday evening to put the signs back on the buses.

The ads are sponsored by the Iowa Atheist and Free Thinkers group. They read, "Don't believe in God? You are not alone."

They went up earlier this month, but officials removed them after receiving complaints.

DART spokesman Brad Miller says putting the signs back honors freedoms protected through shared civil liberties.
