"F*** Your God"
MANSFIELD – A church marquee that displayed a message disagreeing with the Supreme Court's recent ruling on same-sex marriage was spray-painted with graffiti this weekend.
the sign at Bisbee Baptist Church was quickly cleaned up to keep showing the message: "Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's right."
Pastor Freddie Matthews said he would like to talk to the person who spray-painted the sign early on July 4 with the phrase, "F--- 2 Your God We Love Gays!"
"Be willing to understand that we have our differences, but expressing them this way is not appropriate," Matthews said.
Matthews had put up the message on June 28, the day after the Supreme Court's ruling struck down the ban on same-sex marriage. He said the message coincided with his sermon that week about marriage and it was undisturbed for about six days.
"I didn't wake up Saturday morning to put something out there to make someone mad," he said.
