The "Under God" spray-painted by vandals onto an atheist billboard on Billy Graham Parkway over the weekend won't be erased until just before July 4, a spokesman for Charlotte Atheists & Agnostics said Monday.

That's how long it will take the billboard company to restore the sign, which featured an American flag background and quoted the original phrase from the Pledge of Allegiance - "One Nation Indivisible" - before "under God" was inserted after "one nation" in 1954.
