Jonesborough church sign offers to remove Obama stickers

JONESBOROUGH, TN   (WJHL) – A sign put up at a Washington County, Tennessee church has people talking. A News Channel 11 viewer contacted us, complaining about the marquee outside.

What you read on the sign depends in which direction you travel down Old Boones Creek Road in Jonesborough. On one side, Jonesborough Baptist Church advertises its Sunday school starting at 10:00 AM. The other side, something totally different, an offer more than an invitation making a point that’s purely political.

“Oh my goodness,” Caryn Vest of Kingsport said when she saw a picture of the sign.

Close to the sign are several flags, including a Confederate.

The pastor of the church, Randy B. Robbins wouldn’t talk on camera, but he told News Channel 11, “I am a proud Southerner, and I disapprove of Obama’s leadership.”
