Harvest Billboards Showing Evangelist Greg Laurie With Bible Taken Down From Malls After Complaints

WEB Notes: So an Evangelist holding a Bible is considered offensive these days? Amazing and here is a photo of the billboard. What a world we live in, apparently people simply do not want to be reminded of their sins. This documents that people truly do believe in God, they simply hate what He has to say. If the billboard were of the tooth fairy, no one would care. We all know the tooth fairy is not real. Since it is God, they “naturally” must rebel. I find it funny how no one ever complains about billboards featuring sex, abortion, or anything else that goes against the family grain.

Evangelist Greg Laurie, who leads the multi-campus Harvest Christian Fellowship, was recently forced to remove billboards promoting his annual SoCal Harvest event from two popular malls in Southern California because they featured him holding a nondescript Bible in his hand that some people found offensive.

Even after the evangelist and his team adjusted the artwork for the billboard to use innocuous photos to promote the event, however, the company they contracted to advertise the event nixed their promotion.

“There was nothing overtly religious about it (billboard image),” John Collins, Harvest executive director, said in a CBN News report.
