Church sign draws complaint

A Green Bay, Wis., church was told Nov. 2 to remove an election-related message from its sign.

City Clerk Chad Weininger said someone had changed the sign outside Redeemer, a Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod congregation, to read: "Only wet babies want change," reported the Green Bay Press Gazette.

The congregation was also a polling place.

Someone complained to the state's Government Accountability Board, and state officials asked the city clerk's office to have the church remove the sign.

The church did so.
