Bizarre Church Sign

Check out the sign in front of Jonesville Church of God in Jonesville, South Carolina. Pastor Roger Byrd came up with the sign's message, and his congregation apparently voted unanimously to put it up. Pastor Bryd's stunning rationale is as follows.
Pastor Byrd says the sign is not meant to be racial or political but rather to make people think. "His name is so close to Osama, I have a feeling he might be Islamic therefore he doesn't recognize Christ," Pastor Byrd said.
This is so crazy it's hilarious.

Pastor Byrd's name is so close to "bird" that I have a feeling he is not human and therefore does not recognise God.

Unless animals/byrds recognise God. I don't know. I never saw an animal acknowledge God. But who knows what they are saying when they sing, and moo, and bleat and all that stuff.

I heard an interview with this guy yesterday on the radio. He is serious about it. He sounded so ignorant. I can't believe he is a pastor and people trust him with their spiritual care. They must be even dumber than him...
