Conservatives In Virginia Angry About Church Sign Promoting Tolerance Of Muslims

Tolerance can be a hard thing to come by in today’s polarized world. One church in Annandale, Virginia is learning this lesson the hard way.

The pastor and congregation of the Little River United Church of Christ in Annandale is receiving a lot of strong objections from various members of the community due to a sign they recently erected promoting tolerance of Muslims.

The sign says “Honor God, Say NO To anti-Muslim bigotry,” which seems like an innocent enough message, but to some people in this strongly conservative, Christian community this message is somehow threatening.

According to various sources, the church has received dozens of messages by voicemail complaining about the sign. Given the volume of messages and rumors about a protest against the church’s sign, it’s quite clear that many Annandale residents believe that the sign is offensive, even if most of their arguments why it is offensive are not logical or are not fact-based.

This is America, however, and everyone has a right to free speech. If some of the residents of Annandale feel that the Church’s sign is offensive, they have every right to express their opinion to their neighbors or the media, or even make a public protest. That said, they most definitely do not have a right to tell the members of the Little River Church that they must take down their sign.
