To Remove Their Sign/Billboard Off Of The I-71 Freeway

      Brunswick, OH

The sign that Southwest Baptist Church is displaying on I-71 S, is not only offensive and slanderous towards those who are part of The LGBT Community, but to those who support LGBT people. It is unfair and unacceptable for people who have friends and family that are LGBT and people who themselves are Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual Or Transgender, to drive down a road and have a billboard tell them they are sinners. The sign is a negative message to the city, to the state, and to the people of the USA. Opinions are allowed, due to freedom of speech. However, this sign is nothing but judgments and slander about people they see unfit in society. It isn’t an opinion about a lifestyle, its a judgment and a condemning to those who are homosexual. Its banners, signs and billboards like these that are causing children, teens and adults to hide who they are. It makes them feel unsafe, unloved and uncared for in their own environment. It makes people live in fear of being who they are, and that, Is unacceptable. Because of signs like that, people lose their lives. By their own hand, or by someone else’s. This billboard does nothing but promote hate in a world that already has too much hate.

      Being gay ISN'T a sin. You can't help how you are BORN. And for those who believe, that would mean how God CREATED you in your mother's womb. The bible SAYS love thee neighbor- that means all your neighbors: black, white, poor, rich, gay, straight, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, etc etc etc.

      Kids should learn to help others through compassion and kindness not hurt them.

      Because homosexuality is a choice, not a disease. If someone chooses to be homosexual in a country governed by democracy, it is their right to do so without persecution. No man or woman's "God" has any dominion over someone that chooses to follow their own beliefs, no matter how alternative or alien they may be to the majority.
