NewsCut’s obsession with billboard controversies is satiated today with word of a billboard brouhaha in West Mansfield, Ohio where a church put this billboard up.
Now that you know a church put it up, it makes perfect sense, right? But if you didn’t know that, you might think an atheist organization put it up. And that’s the controversy.
“Some Christians were asking us to take it down. But it’s the kind of sign designed to make you think,” Frank Moore, pastor of McElroy Road Church of Christ, told the Mansfield News Journal.
“We earnestly thank the McElroy Road Church of Christ for advertising our thoughts,” an official with the Mid Ohio Atheists said.
