Anti-Gay Billboard in Tennessee Sparks Controversy

Tennessee Anti Gay Billboard

An anti-gay, religious billboard on Highway 52 in Tennessee has sparked controversy and infuriated a number of local residents. The billboard was commissioned by war veteran Rodney Monday four months ago, when he and a few of his friends, referring to themselves as ‘Concerned Christians,’ pooled some funds with hopes of quoting a Biblical passage that would be displayed in a public space in Portland.

“You shall not lie with a man as with a woman. It is an abomination,” reads the billboard, purportedly signed by ‘GOD.’ “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin.”
