The Warren County Commissioners will not approve a giant Racino Sign at RT 63 and I 75.

The Racino is going in; you might as well let them promote.

Perhaps the commissioners figured its not a good idea to post a 'sin' activity next to Jesus.

well that's even sillier if that's the case.

In the end the county will lose out.  I am sure they have skin in the game at the Racino and without a big sign on 75 they will surely lose out of some spur of the moment business.

How much do Jesus and that church pay in taxes to the community/county?  Oh yeah...that's right

Gambling is a sin now?  says who?  Probably the very same church that takes their tithe directly from people's pay.

A sign would be fine. A gigantic/obnoxious sign would not.

"I think that I shall never see
a sign as lovely as a tree.
Indeed, unless the signs all fall,
I may never see a tree at all."

LOL!  How does EVERY thread seem to completely stray off the original topic?
