Milwaukee billboard causing Christmas controversy

A new billboard in Milwaukee is creating quite the stir this holiday season.

An atheist group put up a billboard encouraging people to "skip church." Some Christians are firing back, saying Christ should not be left out of Christmas.

But those with the group who put up the sign, Southwest Wisconsin Free Thinkers, say its not a message against Christmas.

"Christmas is a beautiful time of year to spend with friends and family. We're suggesting you do that instead of wasting it in church and

lying to your children," said Rob Moore, a member of Southeast Wisconsin Free Thinkers.

"Those who are believers will take a look at it and say it's a pity that someone has to take a stance like this." said Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listeski.
