Stay Classy, South Carolina

Why don’t churches like this ever get their tax-free status revoked?

Pastor Roger Byrd said that he just wanted to get people thinking. So last Thursday, he put a new message on the sign at the Jonesville Church of God.

It reads: “Obama, Osama, hmm, are they brothers?”

Byrd said that the message wasn’t meant to be racial or political.

“It’s simply to cause people to realize and to see what possibly could happen if we were to get someone in there that does not believe in Jesus Christ,” he said.

This guy’s going to expound on the virtues of getting people thinking? For real?

He took the issue before his congregation Sunday night, and they decided unanimously to keep it.

Wow, good thing it was a unanimous decision. You wouldn’t want anyone thinking differently about it.
