Default religious billboards

do you agree with having huge billboards on major highways plastered with someones religious views? i've seen tons of anti abortion ones a few of which make me sick. one i seen showed an aborted fetus picture saying "god wouldn't have wanted this. choose life" thats going alittle far don't ya think? i've seen the ten commandments in a few different places, plenty of jesus saves, and others saying bible translations.
in my mind thats one group trying to force their views upon others which i don't think is right.

If someone is paying for it, they have every right to do it. Stop being a hippy liberal douchebag.

by that logic can i put up a billboard that says fukc religious people? how about a one with a giant dick pasted across it? no. so why should be ok to have grotesque pictures of a dead fetus on a billboard. and not just that either. outside of abortion clinics there is a growing number of religious protesters with disgusting pictures on sign boards. they hit the dreamcruise every year as well.

Nothing Logic about it. Yes you can go make your sign and hang it under your shingle. Its called Freedom. Granted to you as "inalienable rights" by the supreme law of this land.

Go look up the Westboro Baptist church. If you want a lesson on the kind of crap people can freely display. Yeah its a really misguided religious sect making the rest of Religious folks look bad. But the Constitution says they can say what they want, which established precedence, which provides the avenue by which you can too. Regardless of whether or not it offends other folks.

I think you would have problems with the word "FUCK" and pictures of a dick. I'm guessing there are some general guidelines of what can and can not be displayed.

RE the video above, it wasn't his sign that got him arrested. It was his big mouth.

kodiak. you do realize that for some conservative folks, today's typical commercials found on sports stations, or during the super bowl, complete with bikini clad bimbo's, erectile dysfunction advertisements, condom commercials , etc. could potentially be as offensive to them, as an aborted fetus is for you?




it seems that 90% of the problems you encounter with the world is your inability to step outside your own, singular perceptions of how/why things should be vs. how someone else may feel.

that being said, you're not alone. Virtually anyone that calls themselves a Democrat, Republican, a liberal, a conservative, a deist, or an atheist is typically just as guilty.

These types of ads are all over Alabama. If you don't like them, don't read them.

I have seen billboards that also say that meth kills and destroys families, which it does. These people are sending a message to all who pass by. Because maybe some people don't know what is happening and need to see the message. Just like the abortion pics on billboards, it is a child being killed. What did the child do to deserve the death sentence? Kinda like shock value to show people what is going on. Adoption is the alternative. Not to mention the side effects abortion has on women.
