A billboard in New York’s Times Square is raising a lot of eyebrows and drawing ire from a local church.
According to Rev. Neil Rhodes, pastor of the interdenominational Times Square Church:
“You walk into a church building, you have naked bodies before your eyes, how are you going to close your eyes and seek God?”
The Associated Press says the ad “is to go up on two sides of the Broadway building that houses Rhodes’ church, its Bible school and day-care center.”
I understand the reverend’s concern, but he says it like there are no sexual ads in Times Square. In fact, the context for this ad campaign is far purer than what you see for most of the other ads. This advertising is not about sex.
The church thinks otherwise. It’s asking the state Supreme Court to block the displays.
There should be a ruling later today.
