Church signs are stepping up everywhere to fight against what they deem “wrong” and “evil.” Technically, they have the right to place judgment and to post their ideas (freedom of speech, folks.) But, frankly, it’s getting to be a bit much. A Church sign in Ohio popped onto the news this week and is causing some major controversy. Its statement: “I kissed a girl and I liked it, then I went to Hell,” was the brainstorm of Pastor David Allison, who took a personal quest for revenge against Katy Perry and her hot song, “I Kissed a Girl,” after seeing the video which he found to be racy and disturbing.

“If anyone has seen the video and understands how lewd and suggestive the video is for this song, that is not something that young people should go toward.” Allison told NBC. But many locals are offended at the church’s behavior, and the newly-infamous sign has been termed the “worst church sign ever.”

Here’s a look at the disturbing church sign along with some others that cause a second-look. I leave Pastor David Allison with just one important question: “What would Jesus Do?”
