Complaints have led to removal of an atheist group's "Imagine No Religion" billboard in Rancho Cucamonga.
The General Outdoor sign company took down the Freedom From Religion Foundation billboard on Thursday after the city asked if there was a way to get it removed. Redevelopment director Linda Daniels says they got 90 complaints.
The 12,000-member Madison, Wis.-based foundation, which advocates separation of church and state, has billboards in eight states that include such messages as "Reasons Greetings" and "Beware of Dogma."
Foundation co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor says the city shouldn't be censoring speech.
In September, the city asked another billboard firm to take down a vagina rejuvenation procedure sign.
