Well today I saw an interesting sight, this billboard, as I drove down the road.
Being Agnostic I didn't become angered, just a little humored, then confused.
The part that confused me was the simple fact that now it seems religions are using commercial billboards to rally the troops, so to speak. So I went
along my daily business until I arrived home and googled this topic. Well it seems this is the new trend our society must face now. Along with the
thousands of other visual stimuli we see from glance to glance we must now be bombarded with religions battling over territory on road signs. Here are
some others I found on the web in use now.
I found this one especially interesting for the church was making a statement on porn.
Well after looking at these photos I realized this really isn't a new trend. Every church I pass there is usually a sign in which each carries it's
own statement, for instance.
So we really can't get mad at these other more recent religious communities for voicing there views, can we?
There are thousands upon thousands of churches across the usa all with these enticing billboards, how can a few alternative views even compete. In
reality the church building itself is a billboard. Everyone knows when they drive past a church, no matter where it is, that it is a church, right?
Well I don't know what the arguing is all about now? From nativity scenes, to menorahs, to christmas trees it's all a matter of choice. None of them
are my choice but I find this very interesting, why all the hate all of a sudden?
Please feel free to embed the video I haven't figured this out yet!
