Church's sign turns to Satan to help spread the Word

Remember several years ago when God started advertising on billboards around the country?

"We need to talk. -- God."

"Need directions? -- God."

"Keep using my name in vain, I'll make rush hour longer. -- God."

A church in Decatur is now using the dark side to spread its message.

A billboard that reads, "I Hate Victory Family Church -- Satan" went up near the intersection of U.S. 287 and U.S. 380 this week.

On the bottom left of the sign is the church's Web site,

Associate pastor Chris Bates said the Web site has had more than 1,100 hits since the billboard went up.

"That's huge for a small church like us," he said.

Other churches are also using Satan in their ad campaigns, including CedarCreek Church in Ohio, which says, "CedarCreek Church Sucks -- Satan."

Bates said his church isn't done yet; the next billboard will read, "Victory Family Church stole my kids -- Satan."

"It's a different take on the God sign," he said. "We just wanted something that didn't look churchy."

“Don’t make me come down there!” is my fave of those.
