    Simply ignoring the pro-life message is not enough for some abortion activists. They feel they have to silence it, and some times they commit crimes to do so. This week, California Catholic Daily reported a life-affirming billboard of a smiling baby in San Francisco had been vandalized. ProLife Across America, which sponsored the billboard, said it is dedicated to promoting positive, pro-life messages on billboards across the country. Its San Francisco billboard did not appear controversial: It had a photo of a baby girl and the words “Born & Unborn, Cherish Life!”along with a pregnancy help hotline. According to the...

    A billboard in St. Augustine, Florida, that criticizes Islam is causing international outrage. The words 'Islam Bloody Islam' are written in a red, tattered font on a black background across the 14-foot high sign. Written in in white below the red words the billboard reads: 'Doomed by its doctrine'. . . . 'This is horrifying because this tells me that they want everyone in our whole city to read this,' she said. A petition, started by a woman named Becky Williams, hopes to bring the sign down. 'We should always stand up for those in our community who are shown...

    A group managed by the Portland Business Alliance plans to replace a controversial downtown billboard that critics argued stereotyped homeless people as drug addicts. The billboard, at Southwest Fourth and Morrison, shows a person holding a cardboard sign that reads "Your spare change funds my addictions." The sign was put up March 1 by Clean and Safe, the nonprofit overseen by the Portland Business Alliance. It is part of an ongoing campaign by the chamber of commerce to discourage people from giving to panhandlers, whose presence can hurt businesses when they set up outside their doors, the chamber said. The...

    The Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio is getting some positive publicity this week after it placed pro-abortion billboards across the city. The billboards advertise the pro-abortion website MyAbortionMyLife.org and the words, “End the silence. End the shame.”, a campaign to portray abortion in a positive light, Mashable reports. Nancy Starner, Preterm’s director of development and communications, said her abortion clinic wants to end the “stigma” of abortion by promoting women’s “diverse” abortion experiences – in other words, women’s abortion experiences that fit their pro-abortion agenda. “We wanted to move away from political black-and-white abstract issue,” Starner said, “and look...

The billboard, which according to Mashable was paid for by the LGBT advocacy group Planting Peace, reads: "Dear Kim Davis, the Fact that you can't sell your daughter for three goats and a cow means we've already redefined marriage."

    TITUSVILLE -- You’ve seen the billboards all over Central Florida -- law firm Morgan & Morgan, touting they’re “For the People." But we found one littered with graffiti – and the question is – who did it? Or is it a stunt? "I don't know how anyone could get up there without being seen," said Tabatha Liller, with a chuckle. Liller works at Shedmovers, a small business on US 1 in North Titusville. Directly across the street stands a billboard -- right now with advertising for law firm Morgan & Morgan.

    Here’s a new low in Washington cluelessness: The feds say Times Square’s iconic billboards must come down or New York will lose highway money. Supposedly, a 2012 law put the crossroads of the world under the restrictions of the 1965 Highway Beautification Act — which limits signs to 1,200 square feet. Now Washington is pushing the city Department of Transportation to comply. Earth to Uncle Sam: Don’t be a jerk.

    You can call it a bureaucratic blunder … or a Washington blooper. But any way you slice it a move by the federal government to make the city remove Times Square’s iconic billboards falls in the category of “whose bright idea is this?” It is known as the “Crossroads of the World,” the “Center of the Universe” and “the Great White Way,” but Times Square could become like the “Black Hole of Calcutta” if the federal government has its way, CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported Tuesday. The feds say many of Times Square’s huge and neon-lit billboards must come down or...

    When it comes to safe sex, one AIDS organization believes that size matters. In what might be considered a sign of the times, a hard-to-miss, extra-large condom is visible to anyone traveling south on Interstate 95 in Fort Lauderdale between Oakland Park and Sunrise boulevards. The billboard, sponsored by the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, went up May 17. The advertising campaign is expected to wrap up in mid-July. At the bottom of the prophylactic image is a web address, useacondom.com, which directs people to the foundation's website, where information about free condoms and HIV testing are available. The group...

    A billboard posted by a Kentucky-based ministry that seeks to treat individuals with unwanted same-sex attraction has garnered controversy for its message. Abba's Delight recently posted the billboard in Louisville, which features a sunny sky and the phrase "Not everyone who is gay is happy. You have options." The billboard has garnered its share of criticism from LGBT groups and individuals who take issue with the organization's view on homosexuality. Daniel Mingo, executive director of Abba's Delight, told The Christian Post that plans for the billboard went back to "the fall of 2013," when "the ministry board discussed the possibility...

The posters, featuring the slogan "Give fur the cold shoulder" in English, show the Canadian-born actress topless with her back to the camera and an arm partly hiding her right breast. An image of falling snow appears above Chinese characters reading "cold shoulders are nothing compared to the pain they feel," and "please don't wear fur." China's straight-laced media regulators have yet to give the posters a green light, said Jason Baker, a Hong Kong-based...

The billboards, going up along Interstate 4 between Tampa and Orlando -- a week before the presidential election -- read, "Global warming equals worse hurricanes. George Bush just doesn't get it." The billboards show a photo of a hurricane swirling toward Florida. The campaign is co-sponsored by Scientists and Engineers for Change and Environment2004.

    Imagine if an activist group blanketed a major city with 55 billboards urging that illegal aliens go back to their own country. Or that homosexuality is a crime against nature. Or that Muslims are responsible for most of the world’s terrorist attacks. The mainstream media would be all over the story. Organizations – like La Raza, like GLAAD, like CAIR – would organize protests. President Obama would publicly condemn the billboards (while defending illegals, homosexuals and Islam). And the sponsors of the billboards would be branded a “hate group.” Yet, there has been little outrage over the 55 billboards that...

    Anyone offended by public displays of Christmas needs to see a psychiatrist. Are we clear on this? You are a loon if the sight of baby Jesus arouses anger or sadness in you. Get help. This brings us to the governor of Rhode Island, Lincoln Chafee. He recently told me on national television that the reason he will not use the word "Christmas" in describing the state Christmas tree is that the word might offend non-Christians. The governor calls the state-purchased symbol a "holiday tree." My reply to the governor was that by excluding the word "Christmas," he might...

    Exactly 150 years ago this Christmas Day, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the poem “Christmas Bells.” It would later provide the lyrics for the familiar carol, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.” Most of those who love the song – which has been recorded by arists ranging from Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Kate Smith to Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Ann Margaret – know little about its backstory. Indeed, the lyrics actually were written by Longfellow during a time of despair. The poet had learned that his first-born son, Charles, a lieutenant in the Union Army during the Civil...

A press release for the American Atheists’ new holiday season billboard campaign reads: “American Atheists announced today that their new billboard is going up in several locations nationwide, including the New Jersey side of the Lincoln Tunnel: the same location as last year’s famous ‘You KNOW it’s a MYTH’ billboard. The new billboard will also be going up in Ohio and Florida. This...

    I was asked by the Young Adult group in my parish to address some ads on our local buses and subway trains here in Washington. The members of the Young adult group found the ads offensive and troubling, especially since they were aimed at kids. The ads are posted by the American “Humanist” Association (AHA) and are indeed aimed at kids and teenagers. The focus of the message is “Kids without God: You’re not the only one.” I have altered the ad at the upper right of this post to avoid listing its website but as you can see God...

    An anti-gun organization doesn't believe a 30-day suspension is adequate punishment for Gilberton police Chief Mark Kessler, so it invested in a "Fire Kessler" billboard near Route 61. But on Saturday, less than a week after the Washington, D.C.-based Coalition to Stop Gun Violence paid for the billboard, a group of about 40 gun-toting Kessler supporters, some wielding assault weapons, rallied in front of the billboard. There, they shouted their own message: "Go f--- yourself." Kessler said the rally was "an act of civil disobedience, a peaceful act." "They're anti-gun. We're pro-gun. I have the right to do and say...

    BRISBANE, Australia, May 31, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Australian pro-life leader Teresa Martin saw something she never expected to see when she drove past the Marie Stopes facility at Bowen Hills in Brisbane. “We were stunned at the billboard,". The billboard, advertizing Miele Australia vacuum cleaners, reads, "Suction so powerful it's scary." The inadvertent placement of advertising for vacuum cleaners on the side of an abortion clinic was part of a national advertising campaign for Miele Australia. Miele told LifeSiteNews.com the company sought removal of their advertising from the billboard the moment they became aware of its location. LifeSiteNews contacted Marie...

    FULL TITLE: World war brew: J.C. Penney places huge billboard advert over Interstate Highway for kettle 'that looks just like Hitler' Retailer J.C. Penney may want to rethink the design of their new kettle after a string of customers complained it looks remarkably like Hitler. The retailer advertised the new kettle - which is exclusively available in its stores - on a huge billboard over the 405 Interstate Highway in southern California. But rather than being tempted into buying new kitchen equipment, commuters driving along the route near Culver City found themselves instantly reminded of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler....

    Two billboards in which images of Native Americans are used to make a gun rights argument are causing a stir with some Colorado residents who say the image is offensive and insensitive. The billboards in this northern Colorado city show three men dressed in traditional Native American attire and the words "Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you." Matt Wells, an account executive with Lamar Advertising in Denver, said Monday that a group of local residents purchased the space. "They have asked to remain anonymous," he said. He also refused to disclose the cost but said...

    The "Les Miserables" soundtrack album jumps to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week with 92,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the first No. 1 soundtrack on the Billboard 200 since the "Hunger Games" album opened atop the April 7, 2012, list. The last musical film soundtrack to the lead the chart was the "Hannah Montana: The Movie" album on May 2, 2009. The last stage musical-turned-movie musical whose companion album reached No. 1 was "Mamma Mia!" in 2008. "Les Miserables" declined 32% in sales in the week ending Jan. 6, but that didn't prevent it from...
