I just need some opinions from around the world. This is the sign that has been posted outside of a church I drive by. The sign has been posted for over a year, once in a while they will put up something else for a week or two then revert to this. I have to pass this church on my way to town and back every time I go out. because of the rural area, the only way to avoid it is to go north into KY then around to the interstate, adding over 20 miles to my trip.
I am deeply offended by the sign, the first time I saw it I was so upset that I was shaking. A young man who works at the library told me that he called the church to complain and was hung up on.
Please note the name of the church as well.
I wouldn't like to see that either, but this is the price we pay for living in a free country... the right to express ourselves, no matter how ridiculous and hateful the expression is to others.
The name of the church and the message on the sign are just funny in a rather demented way, but then, my sense of humor is rather quirky and obscure. I can only speculate about the sort of membership in that congregation. Sounds rather insular and cult-like.
You could drive 20 miles out of your way to avoid seeing it. Or you could just avoid looking at it as you drive by, and ignore it altogether.
Let it go, ggmomliz. I agree with your assessment, and it is hideous.
They have the right to put that drivel on the marquee as long as it remains on that church property. When it moves to the courthouse, statehouse, post office, or any other tax-funded public building, it becomes a problem.
