Annie Laurie Gaylor heads the Madison, Wis.-based Freedom From Religion Foundation. She says the sign protesting the display of religious symbols will be replaced.
The apparent theft from the Capitol's rotunda overnight Monday was reported to police.
The sign referred to religion as "myth and superstition" and stood near a Nativity scene sponsored by a Springfield group.
An identical atheist sign in Washington state was stolen and recovered, and one in Wisconsin was vandalized.
