How unAnglican!

churchsign Tori Sutton in local Southwestern Ontario writes:

A newly erected sign outside St. James Anglican Church has some neighbours and members of Heritage Stratford seeing red.

Controversy erupted earlier this month after the sign, which features a digital LED screen, went up on the lawn at the Mornington Street church.

In response to the outcry, church officials dimmed the intensity of the red digital read-out, turned off the pulsing letters and opted for a stationary, rather than scrolling, message.

The sign is also being turned off at dusk, instead of 11 p.m. as originally dictated by city council when approval was given earlier this year.
