Q: Do Religious Road Side Messages Bug You?

Issue: A sermon at 65 mph: Evangelism by signs shares church message and inspires some drivers, but makes others/Bill Buley, Coeur d’Alene Press

Pro: “We want to put up text that challenges or meets the needs of the traveling public. It’s not just willy-nilly out of the Bible” — Ron Vieselmeyer/Highway Evangelism

Con: Joel Bezaire started the blog, which offers “critical analysis of critically bad church signs,” according to the Web site. He says a lot of the signs are meant to be funny but aren’t — and end up making Christianity look silly and irrelevant.

Question: The Highway Evangelism sign, of course, replaces the old Bible Book Nook one with changing messages and missing letters. Are you in favor of such religious signs along our highways and byways?
