Tell Lamar Advertising: We won't stand for anti-LGBT speech on your billboards

    1. Sponsored by

      Human Rights Campaign

 

The Church on Strayer – a Toledo, Ohio church of 2,500 members – recently purchased nine billboards around the city broadcasting the message, "Being Gay is NOT a gift from God."

Lamar Advertising – the company that provided the ad space for this dangerous message – should know better. Hateful ads are not worth the profit – especially at a time when so many LGBT youth are already bombarded with hostility from peers and school administrators. The last thing anybody needs is to see this kind of distorted message on their walk home from school.

Lamar Advertising claims to be the nation's leading outdoor advertising firm – and spreading lies and prejudice is not the behavior we expect from a leader.

Tell Lamar Advertising to put principle before profit: Take down the hateful billboards in Toledo before they do any more damage.

      I'm a Christian and I know better than to think homosexuality is anything other than a sexual preference. Ignorant churches like these annoy me. I'm signing because I am sick of these radicals.

      Being gay is a gift. Everything you have is a gift! Especially forgiveness, love, and eternal life. Are billboards like these what people call "love"? I thought Jesus preached equality and love. I'm a homosexual Christian and I can not believe this. This is not what the Bible preaches.
