Anti-Wiccan posters found offensive (2)

I was quite surprised on Monday to see a friend of mine completely flake out over some posters in the Infinite Corridor. As she was going to the movie, and we couldn't talk for long, I went to find one myself and see what it said. Signed by a Michael W. Courtney G of Covenant Church, these posters (for those who may not have seen them) stated: "Witchcraft is Wickedness" and "Wicca is a Whore," with verses quoted from the Bible to support these statements.

This is a good example of where freedom of speech crosses the line into harassment. These posters seem to have been placed solely to publicize claims that put Wiccans in a bad light, quoting verses from a book in which Wiccans do not believe, to justify these claims.

I call on Courtney and his Covenant Church, or whoever is responsible for the placement of these posters, to remove any remaining posters and to desist from further harassment of this or any other kind.
