A group is taking their campaign to get religion out of government, with three billboards placed throughout Colorado Springs.

It says "God and Government a Dangerous Mix: Keep State & Church Separate."

This ad comes on the heals of a district court decision in Wisconsin that ruled a national day of prayer unconstitutional.

The group behind the billboards is the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and they've used billboard campaigns like this in the past.

The foundation specifically targeted Colorado Springs for this campaign because the National Day of Prayer Task Force is housed at Focus on the Family.

Have you seen the billboard? If so, what do you think about the message?
