Thumbs-up, thumbs-down; it's your choice

Thumbs-down to the "Pray for Obama" sign. I like how it says "Pray for Obama," because we should pray for our leaders, whether they are local, state or nation.
However, after you read the Psalm 109:8, it is mean-spirited and should be removed. Shame on Mr. Neitsch for allowing the sign to be erected on his property. I guess it's about money for him. Also, shame on the ones responsible for spreading the venom and unchristian message. I thank the Rev. Amy Danchik for petitioning for the sign to be removed.
Thumbs-down to the new billboards erected Thursday along Zac Lentz Parkway. Unneeded eye pollution.
