“Pastor bizarrely explains anti-Muslim church sign: I’m not politically correct, but I am biblically correct,” by Bethania Palma Markus, Raw Story, May 14, 2016:

The pastor of an Oregon Baptist church is under fire locally for putting what critics call a bigoted message on his church’s sign board, KATU reports.

Another resident, Eric Cohn, said he was very upset.

“I literally had to stop and back up and make sure I saw what I saw, and I was profoundly offended and upset by it,” Cohn told KATU….
