Mystery surrounds ‘God’s’ billboards in Texas
BY ANA MCKENZIE, The Brownsville Herald
There’s one billboard that stands out among the crowd advertising health care, car sales and upcoming political figures.
It’s completely white with a few black words that read things like “You think it’s hot here?” and “Let’s meet me at my house Sunday before the game.”
The advertiser isn’t someone you can directly call or e-mail. The “advertiser” is God.
“The messages are often playful but are generally positive in na-ture,” said the Rev. Robert E. Maher of St. Joseph’s church in Edinburg. “I applaud the effort to gently remind people of some of the more important things in life.”
Though Maher hasn’t spoken about the billboards to his congregation, he acknowledges their effectiveness and realizes the advertiser’s sincere motives.
But, the advertiser cannot be contacted or praised because no one knows who it is.
