Dana Wachter of Fox Carolina Relieved to Find Billboards Were Not in Fact Signed by Satan

Here’s a report from Fox Carolina about some revival billboards. Anything strike you as odd?

GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) – Some new billboards are getting some attention in the Upstate because they’re notes written by Satan.

They tell people not to go to a specific church on Sunday.  The signs read, “Please do not go to Redemption World Outreach Center this Sunday,” and they’re signed “Satan. ”

We found out the billboards are sponsored by Redemption as a unique sort of advertisement.

Maybe this is just poor writing but this sounds like the reporter, one Dana Wachter, wasn’t sure that Redemption Outreach had put up the billboards. It sounds like she actually called to “find out” whether Redemption Outreach put up the billboards.

But that can’t be right. I mean, the billboards are pretty straightforward and don’t require much “finding out” of anything. In fact, it really doesn’t even require reporting on since church billboards are a dime a dozen in these parts. So … what the hell is this report about? Did reporters at Fox Carolina think there were people out there who weren’t sure that Satan hadn’t taken out a billboard?

    This is an interesting way at it – but sort of a copy of the God perspective bill boards running a decade ago, which in my opinion were way much more effective.

    They’re odd billboards to be sure – but hardly newsworthy.
