ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - One of three billboards put up by a group of atheists and agnostics in Virginia has been vandalized.

The billboards read: "Don't believe in God? Join the Club."

They were put up by the Blue Ridge Coalition of Reason with $3,500 in funding from the United Coalition of Reason.

The message on one of the billboards, in Salem, was changed by someone with black spray paint. "Don't" was covered, leaving the message as "believe in God?"

Paul Hoyt is the coordinator of the Blue Ridge Coalition of Reason. He tells The Roanoke Times (http://bit.ly/Vjwpvc) the billboards have achieved their purpose, despite the vandalism of one billboard.

He said the group has received many emails since the billboards went up this week.
