Controversial Billboard In Kentucky Upsets LGBT Community

Posted: Updated:

An anti-gay billboard in Kentucky has created controversy and has earned requests for its removal.

The founder of the group that created the Billboard, Daniel Mingo, denies that the ad targets homosexuality.

"This specifically targets people who have same-sex attractions that are unwanted," said Mingo. "Abba's delight is a ministry that helps people of faith who are uncomfortable with their same-sex attractions."

Mingo claims he had to "walk away from homosexuality" because of his religious preferences and the beliefs therein.

"Who else to help someone walk out of something that they don't want to be in than someone else who has already walked that path?" said Mingo.

Chris Hartman, the director of the Fairness Campaign, is outraged by the advertisement and believes that it targets the gay community with anti-gay propaganda.

"To suggest that this organization is going to help someone is an exact obfuscation of the truth, it's the opposite; they're going to harm 90 percent of the people that walk in and out of their door," said Hartman.  "An organization like this really needs to be shut down."
