A right wing anti-LGBTQ group, SeedSowers, had put up a billboard in a neighborhood with a strong LGBTQ community. The billboard seemed innocent enough in itself, but provided a link to the group's website that uses their interpretation of selectively chosen Bible verses to try to rationalize their hate. In other words, the usual Christofascist bullshit.

Naturally, people were upset by this offensive sign:

“Especially like using the pride flag as the signage for the sign itself it really gave me an optimistic opinion of it at first but once you actually go to the website I can say that I was very disappointed I was sad I was frustrated,” explained Oliver Lesher who is a concerned LGBTQ community member.

The billboard says it was paid for by a group called Seed Sowers, which claims to be a group of Christians who want to distribute God’s Word. No one seems to know who from the group put the sign in Carytown, or how long it will be up for.

“They placed it over Carytown which is notoriously composed of people from my community like that’s one of our main neighborhoods in Richmond so I very honestly believe that this billboard was an intimidation tactic against our community but also a misleading one against the entire community,” Lesher stated.

How upset, you might ask? Upset enough that the thousands of dollars the hate group spent to put up the sign was gone in a few days, along with the sign that was completely ripped down.

If these hate-filled chumps had actually read their Bibles, they would have known that love conquers all.
