Sixth-Commandment Billboards Soon to Saturate Detroit’s Blighted Neighborhoods (Killings to Cease in 5, 4, 3….)

Urban violence in Detroit is out of control, and one woman won’t take it anymore.

In the aftermath of a shooting in a Detroit barbershop that killed three people and wounded six on Nov. 6, Pastor Ovella Andreas mobilized other church leaders to figure out how to respond. “This is an emergency; this is a crisis, and we have to come together now to do what we can,” she told WWJ. “I truly know if we do what we can, God will do what we cannot; but we’re not doing all that we can.”

So what did pastor Andreas and her task force decide to do? Simple. They will

bombard Detroit with “Thou Shalt Not Kill” banners and signs around the city with the hopes that seeing the sixth commandment everywhere will serve as a wake-up call to the community. “Our goal now is to infiltrate and saturate our communities with this commandment, via buses, via billboards,” Andreas said.

Brilliant. That ought to stamp out gun crime, right? Right?
