LEXINGTON, KY (WAVE) – A controversial billboard in Lexington has some Christians saying it needs to come down, while other people cite freedom of speech.

The billboard at the intersection of New Circle and Nicholasville Roads reads, "Don't believe in God? Join the Club." That "club" is the Bluegrass Coalition of Reason.

"We are not here to change anyone's opinion or tell anybody they are wrong or right or anything else," said Clay Maney with the Bluegrass Coalition of Reason. "We are just trying to advertise that we are here."

The billboard was put up in preparation of the Kentucky Free Thought Convention in October.
