County Orders Church to Remove “Support Our Troops” Sign

A church is in a clash with Nevada County after being told to take down a sign with an American flag and a message to support the troops.

Simple Truth Church put up the sign to cover an old, rundown billboard. However the “Support Our Troops” sign is becoming quite controversial. If the church doesn’t remove the sign, it could be fined.

Most drivers CBS13 spoke with did not have a problem with the sign.

“It doesn’t bother me at all,” said one person.

But for others, it’s an eyesore. It’s for that reason someone complained to the county to have it taken down.

“It’s a little surprising. All we meant to do was beautify the area, the corner, and it’s a reminder for me — for everyone that drives by — to pray for the troops,” church member Julia Stokes said.
