From Fox News: A controversial North Carolina billboard has drawn criticism for referring to the 9/11 terror attack in promoting President Trump’s travel ban.

The billboard on I-40 in Catawba County says “why support President Trump’s immigration ban? 19 Muslim immigrants killed 2977 Americans. September 11, 2001.”

Some find the billboard hateful, WSOC-TV reported on Friday. “I believe in the Christian way and that’s to embrace everybody,” a man named Oliver Reitzell told the station. “Kind of the hate message behind it. I’m not for that.”

An associate pastor Paul Cummings said the billboard contradicts teachings from the Bible.

“My opinion is that I think these people need the saving gospel of Jesus more than I need to be protected,” Cummings told the station. “I’m perfectly willing for people who are hostile to us, to be in our country, because that’s what loving your enemy is all about.”

A group called the North Carolina Pastors Network paid for the billboard and has refused to remove it. “This has nothing whatsoever to do with hatred or hostility toward anyone that comes from a background,” Dave Kistler, the group’s president, told WCNC-TV. “I have dear friends that are Muslim.”

The station points out that 19 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Lebanon. Those countries are not part of the Trump’s travel ban.

The U.S. appeals court in Virginia ruled Thursday that the Trump revised ban violated constitutional rights.

  1. I guess Christ’s treatment of the money lenders in the temple wasn’t the Christian way either.

  2. This is a great billboard and is 100% accurate.
    Anyone objecting is a psycho muslim apologist bent on self-destruction.

    You want to die at the hands of a muslim fanatic? Go ahead but don’t include me or my family.
    Or move to Europe, they are psycho muslim apologists there, and they defend it.

    • MeThePeople . . . You have concisely stated what should be obvious to anyone with a head on their shoulders. I really do not understand why stating something that is 100% truthful can be a bad thing. We did not choose to have this horror brought to our shores. Some of the citizens of our country are so goofy . . . they defy what generations of Americans have strived to bring about . . . and that is a country based on freedom. If Muslimes are allowed to overrun this nation (like they are in France, Germany, Sweden, the Netherland, etc.) no one will have freedom. If they come to absolute power . . . then the infidels (meaning you and I) will be subject to slavery, or death. I am sick and tired of these apologists that feel they must bow and scrape at the feet of Muslimes. They really would be better off being in Germany . . . and our nation would be better off not having them within the confines of our land.

      I do not believe that Our God intended that this land be overrun with those who do not believe in Jesus Christ as The Lord and Savior. We were given intelligence by Our Creator, and He expects that we use it; not only in maintaining the freedom of this nation, but in ensuring that we a Christian nation have surviving Saints to greet The Savior upon his return! If we surrender to Muslimes so that Christians are killed off . . . we would be guilty of following a plan that was put into place that by Evil One of Old, who first started the war on this Earth to supplant Our God. For those who think that should put their head on the chopping block, please do so! But don’t think that I want you making the decisions that would put me or my family’s heads on the chopping block also! You are a disgrace to all those who have shed blood in the defense of this country . . . and I find that with that kind of thinking you are really not a Christian, or you are of diminished capacity, and have not thought this out.

  4. Idiots! But I agree with them, “sorta…” – Since we can’t ban all potential threats, I just hope I get one of these idiots close by. When the beheadings start, they will be there embracing the enemy, while I lock and load and make sure I protect family, friends, and country! Useful idiots indeed!

    • Anonymous . . . thank you for bring that most profound picture to our attention. That really does say just about everything we need to know.

      I remember so well, watching the tv as I was getting ready for work that fateful morning . . . I kept thinking that it was a movie or something. But then, when I changed channels . . . there it was, the very same coverage.

      At that time I was working part time for The American Red Cross. That evening, they had us cease calling blood donors, and opened all phone lines to take “inbound calls.” I was never more proud of my fellow citizens than I was that day, and the days to follow. So very many were calling to ask . . . “What can I do?” People stood in lines across our nation to donate blood at Red Cross sites, as well as donating monies to help in this emergency. This was one of the first times that I saw that “Americans” can stick together when the going gets tough! I hope that will remain to be true, at times I perceive that we are so fractured as a people that others could easily conquer us.

What these idiots do not understand is that the kingdom of God is not going to welcome them when they are beheaded and that they will not be seen as martyrs for Christ! But they will be judged for dropping the ball and not defending self, family, friends, country and the God-given liberties we all enjoy: Life, Liberty, Property and the Pursuit of Happiness!

  8. Hate message? The truth is never hate. It might not be pretty but the truth is just that the truth. And it is true that 19 muslims killed almost 3,000 American citizens. And that was just the beginning. They are driven to kill many more. People like the man in the article that feel this bill board is a hate message I deem you a danger to the safety of American citizens. We cannot let our faith blind us an jeopardize the life and safety of the American people. God does not tell us to lie down and allow people to kill us.

  9. This got me thinking about the Terrorist attacks of 9-11-01; Can anyone tell me how anyone figures these attacks could have been “faked”,and been done by our OWN Government? I liken these to the Holocaust in Germany during WW-II,and all the people who say they believe THAT didn’t happen. How can they even THINK that,when the evidence of these events stands all around us? Can/will our Government REALLY go to the effort to fake ALL THIS? To what end? It boggles my mind…..

    • truckjunkie, if you want to get a better idea of why some people talk about 9/11 as a red flag event, spend some time on the internet on websites that have been digging into it; a lot of the folk involved in it are family members of those who died, not nut conspiracy theorists, and scientists. Some things, a lot of things, do not add up, from evidence of demolition chemicals used, to how the buildings could just crumble down like that (they couldn’t) and Building 7 being brought down with nothing hitting it, obviously a controlled demolition, to hide what was there, from documented evidence (sightings) that some of the “suicidal” Muslims that supposedly brought the towers down and died, in fact, did not, and were seen alive in Mideast countries, etc. I am not going to start a discussion here in favor or against, just saying it is important to be clear minded about it and gather all the information possible, and keep a healthy dose of mistrust when it comes to those in power. Don’t forget, the gov. is not a friend, it’s power, and subjugation and control of the masses is the main and last objective of any government; history proves it. Red flag events have been used again and again under all regimes and at all times to grab more power and control the populace. We the people are expendable and nothing but cannon fodder to the powers that be! What came out of 9/11? Follow the trails: money, politics, control, surveillance, etc. Remember what Reagan is quoted as saying were the scariest words in the English language? “We’re from the government and we’re here to help you.” The government, power, must be kept in check at all times. Liberty requires eternal vigilance; slavery is the result of complacency and entrusting others with the defense of our God given rights.

      • Pat Riot . . . Wow! There is no doubt about it, people should not put their trust in the government . . . any government . . . until Jesus Christ returns to set up His government.

        How I would love to be free of all the evil men and women in all the governments across this Earth. Those who remain on the Earth to see the return of The Lord, will truly be lucky. Although, they will be people who will have to remain strong and resilient in order to make it through all the trials and tribulations before such time.

        • Auntie Lulu, you are absolutely right and yes it would be great if we could get rid of all evil people in governments who use and abuse their power. That, however, won’t happen, will it? We are here to make sure we pass the test. We need to be tried. “Choose you this day whom ye will serve,” always rings true, chose between GOD or Mammon: can’t serve both. Governments are made up of people and all is not lost because there are good people in places where decisions are made but I fear the majority of people who seek power are sadly not concerned with ethics, righteousness or doing good, and certainly not doing God’s work. And we all know that even good people do bad things, end up making deals and compromising, giving up this to get that. I don’t envy people who stand for Godly action and Divine justice and face evil daily in their decisions and choices because the PTB are relentless at promoting evil and getting their ways. I have been in the belly of the beast. It’s exhausting and a never ending fight, and at some point, you want out because it wears you to death. Sometimes the best battles are won when one retreats and preserves life so one may continue fighting with better chances to win. That is why I believe eternal vigilance truly is the price of Liberty. We must be ready to give all for it but do it intelligently; we must be wise as serpents, and even if harmless as doves, at times able to strike down our enemies with swords forged from plows, not behave like the idiots who believe allowing jihadists and evil doers to come into our midst are being charitable and giving the other cheek. Sorry for the rant. God bless!

      • That’s depressing. Probably better I just stop listening to anything anyone says,since EVERYONE is calling EVERYONE ELSE liars or blaming people who aren’t even involved these days. Even doing my own research on things,it seems possible to shoot ANYONE’S information full of holes,if you let your suspicion run wild. Who can you trust? Why? How do you KNOW they can be trusted? What if they’re being FORCED to take a walk on the dark side? If the Feds can lie and manufacture evidence,and create red flag scenarios,why couldn’t others,the wealthy or the powerful of foreign governments? With the technology available these days,and the skills of God knows how many others out there,everything can be verifiably true-or maybe NOTHING is true. Or maybe some was true,until the Techies got a hold of it and re-shaped the past…..I’m SO TIRED of this “These good guys are REALLY bad guys,but we can’t trust that they won’t do good things for the wrong reasons,as part of a plan…..I need a nap.

      • Pat, I totally agree with you about the evidence found from the 9/11 event. It’s not why I’m for following Trump’s travel ban. It’s just common sense to ban those coming from Islamist countries where few individuals have accurate personal identification.

        Catawba county is my home (Hickory) and Paul Cummings is the assoc. pastor from my home church that was formed in the 1860’s by members of my family. I am still a member there, but live 50 miles away. I don’t agree with what Paul said. It was a totally naive and unrealistic viewpoint not unlike what Katy Perry spewed out after the Manchester, UK bombing. Paul’s a good man but he obviously has been drinking the kool-aid. The head pastor is much older than Paul and I’m not sure he holds the same viewpoint. If he does, I’m not sure I want to know.

      • Yes, exactly. They are called “False Flag” events.
        My father in law is a structural engineer, and he’s does not believe in conspiracies at all. At the time 9-11 first happened, he couldn’t understand how both buildings collapsed into their own footprint and all he could see from an overview of the forensics was an intentional demolition. He was truly waiting to hear news that the terrorists rigged the buildings for demolition. That news never came. He simply shakes his head saying he doesn’t understand how it happened. Jet fuel is not hot enough to melt steel. Though my father in law never really went down the conspiracy path, his baffling questions always stuck with me.
        AND In Sept of 2001 I was working for an accountant who got a call concerning Building 7 or what was called The Soloman building from Betsy Soloman on 9-11 about insurance BEFORE it was destroyed. It didn’t occur to me at the time that a plane didn’t hit this building. I didn’t want to look too closely at the time. While we will never know exactly what happened, I can see something is terribly wrong with the official story.
        I do not trust any ‘official’ government narrative anymore. We are living in fictional times.

  10. “Political correctness” will be the death of The Republic UNLESS we refuse to accept this “tool” of fascist/communist propagandists.
    The ruthless, demonic actions of everyone associated with the massacre on 9/11 precipitated the first swing of the wrecking ball directed at our God-given constitutional rights. I’m a conspiracy realist, the truth is out there.
    I applaud the NC Pastors for sticking a finger in the eyes of sleeping idiots, stricken into stupidity by political correctness. They must either be shocked awake or stunned into silence.

  12. For the leftists who continue to point out that the 9-11 terrorists came from countries NOT on the banned list, here is why: We’re not interested in preventing al queda from terrorist hotbed countries in the 90s from coming here. That was then, this is now. And NOW, we’re interested in keeping out terrorists from CURRENT terrorist hotbed countries, which even the previous administration determined were the most likely countries from which ISIS terrorists — those we now fear most — would be most likely to come.
    It’s not really that difficult a concept, if the left who object were being honest in their complaints.

  13. \\\\ Truth In Advertising ///////
    * Truth In Advertising
    When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The Federal Trade Commission enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears – in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumers’ health or their pocketbooks – claims about food, over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, and tobacco and on conduct related to high-tech products and the Internet. The FTC also monitors and writes reports about ad industry practices regarding the marketing of alcohol and tobacco.

    When the FTC finds a case of fraud perpetrated on consumers, the agency files actions in federal district court for immediate and permanent orders to stop scams; prevent fraudsters from perpetrating scams in the future; freeze their assets; and get compensation for victims.
