So, this is a real billboard that the Equippers Church in New Zealand just put up:
You can’t see it in that picture, but there are currently six lines on it, representing the six people who have been “healed” from cancer by Jesus… even though the six people are using modern medicine to treat their illness…
At least there’s some uproar over the fact that the church is trying to capitalize on peoples’ misery, making claims that it can’t possibly prove:
The billboard has sparked outrage from Taradale resident Jody Condin whose three-year-old son has leukaemia.
“I was just disgusted [when I saw the sign],” she told Campbell Live.
“I just couldn’t believe it, it’s just shocking. I couldn’t believe they could make those claims out of nowhere.”
That seems to be one of the few voices against it, though. At least when atheist put up billboards, we make claims we can back up. (Usually.)
