"CedarCreek Church Sucks" is his message displayed on a blood-red background at Talmadge and Monroe streets. Two more billboards are scheduled to go up tomorrow, Good Friday, saying, "I Was Robbed at CedarCreek" and "Boycott CedarCreek."
All three billboards will be "signed" by Satan and include a Web site address, www.SatanHatesCedarCreek.com.
"We want to shake the tree," said the Rev. Lee Powell, lead pastor at CedarCreek, which started the ads last week.
"We actually got the idea from a church in Oklahoma called LifeChurch," he said yesterday. "When we saw what they were doing, we immediately thought, 'That is so cool,' and we laughed. Then we said, 'There is very serious business behind this humor.'"
Mr. Powell said he received permission from LifeChurch to use the marketing strategy for CedarCreek, an independent "seeker-sensitive" church founded in October, 1975.

An interesting concept for a church promotion.

Wry is a good term for this type of humor. It's the type of humor I enjoy from time to time. Good, cutting edge type humor gets people's attention. A few people will not like it, but those people are quite like the "church lady" type pictured above. :smile: I just ignore them and move on.

How come you don't have the option to delete a post on Edit? I tried deleting a double post.

You may want to ask Mike about that one, Stlrs - I think only mods are given the necessary access to do so for now. To answer your question though, I think the way the software is set up now is that if you give someone the access to delete posts, they will be able to delete ANY post at that point, including posts made by other posters.

I see, on other boards you can delete your own post, and nobody elses.
