One side of the sign read “Christ voted Democrat” and the other read “Romney hates women”.
Luke Jackson, the pastor of the church, said the statements on the sign were vandalism and that the authorities had been contacted.
“I had about eight missed calls from church members and people from the community,” Jackson said.
He said the sign must have been changed late Thursday night, but not by anyone associated with the church. The sign was still up Friday morning, but Jackson said an elder with the church came in and changed it.
Jackson said the person responsible used letters that were already on the marquee, and stole the remanding letters that were used Thursday.
“One community member in particular had said, ‘I don’t believe a church should be promoting anything like that in a political way,’ and I agreed 100 percent,” he said.
On one part of the sign, it says “Jesus said forgive”. Jackson said that’s in reference to he and the church forgiving the person responsible for changing the sign.
“I would like for them to come and visit us on Sunday, we’ll love to have them,” said Jackson.
