Controversial Anti-Obama Billboards

Freedom of Expression or too Inflammatory



These billboards were spotted in Missouri and the Orlando, Florida area. This is certainly an expression of Americans first amendment ‘freedom of speech’ rights. We may not question anyone’s freedom to express their opinions but can we not questions whether this choice of expression is really more inflammatory than it is helpful??

    I agree with you about the billboards being inflammatory. I don't think putting these billboards up will help the situation with our president at all.

  2. Though some of the things expressed maybe true we did vote him into office so we dug our own hole. Maybe as christians instead of complaining all the time we should actually get up and do something

  3. I think that both you and Madison are correct. I think that they are doing more harm than good. I think that we should have a freedom to criticize, but, to me, it's going a little far and isn't helping at all.

  4. I have to respectfully disagree. Political dissent has long been the hallmark of American freedom & liberty, even if some consider it inflammatory. The politically correct crowd has so cleverly restricted our use of the English language so as to squelch free expression. Every one of those billboards contains truth, and labeling them inflammatory just suppresses the truth that needs to be spread.

    Remember, the Gospel is offensive to those who are perishing; likewise, political truth offense those who are naive and/or asleep.

    I pray every day for Obama, that he will be 1) saved, 2) humbled, 3) exposed, and 4) protected from physical harm, which even as a critic, I do not wish upon him.

    Lord, please save our Republic, even though we don't deserve it. Help us each to do our part (all four items) of 2 Chronicles 7:14, so that You will do Yours.
