"When you condemn all religions and say they are a fairytale that is wrong," said Rich Stormes, a nearby business owner.
The billboard went up a week before Easter and business at the restaurant went down. "Easter Sunday is usually a busy good day," said John Russel, an employee at Straub's. "Easter Sunday business was down by two thirds."
MediaNet said it had no idea the sign was there and someone put it up illegally in the middle of the night.
The billboard rents for $1,400 a month. If an anti-religious group paid to rent it legitimately there is no telling how long it would have been up.
