Gaines is a member of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a secular non-profit based in Madison, Wisconsin. The message is actually their slogan, and they paid for the sign. But Gaines got them involved, and he himself donated some funds to make it happen.
Said Gaines in a statement:
"To denigrate other people's relationships or the decisions they have had to make with their outdated religious dogmas is simply shameful."
