North Carolina billboard’s blunt truth about the travel ban


President Trump’s travel ban may not have passed an appeals court, but a church group in North Carolina isn’t mincing words about why it’s needed.

The North Carolina Pastors’ Network put up a billboard along an Interstate which says:
“Why support President Trump’s immigration ban? 19 Muslim immigrants killed 2977 Americans. September 11, 2001.”
It blares its message loud and clear for residents of Claremont and Catawba, through which the interstate runs. Dave Kistler, who heads the group,told CNN the billboard isn’t meant to incite religious animus saying:
“This isn’t about hate. The issue we’re trying to make is the problem with Islam and its ideology.”
Kitlas says he has Muslim friends but most of them have converted to Christianity. He says he’s not worried about what they think saying:
“I’m not worried about offending them. I don’t hate them. This is not a slight against any individual.”

    Since when does telling the truth disturb those of us who value the truth? It is ignorance to the truth and a willingness to ignore it that always spells disaster.

    And Trump just sold billions in arms to the home country of the 9/11 terrorists, and his supporters are ecstatic. Shows just how dumb his cult is.

      All PRESIDENT Trump did was honor a contract that Obama and kerry made with the Saudis. But hey, who cares about the truth, right?

        I couldn’t find anything on contract you mention. best i could find was a similar deal obama made that didn’t include some guided missiles that are now included in this new deal. everything i could find on this deal is that is a new deal. can you give a link maybe to where you read about this contract?

    To: President Trump” Borders won’t do it. America needs to help Germany and the other Countries in Europe immediately. They are our borders. Bring our soldiers to their Homeland to protect them and our Northern border and assist Germany. Hire a mercenary army of dying patriots to protect the people of Germany from Satan’s grip. We allow them to take Germany–we allow them to take us! France is next. Eventually, all of Canada, Instead of separating Mexico from us, separate Mexico from them. These countries are our borders and friends. They need our help. At this point’ “An ounce of precaution is worth a pound of cure.” All immigrants must be required to take micro/voice stress analysis tests to remain in our Country. Any that fail need to be exiled.

      Europe doesn’t want you. They don’t want the U.S there, they don’t want the U.S President there, they don’t want your army, they don’t want your ideology, they don’t want your nationalism, they don’t want your racism, they don’t want your religion, they don’t want your politics. They don’t want your mentally ill way of thinking. Just stay in the Midwest and let us say thank you for never traveling.

        You are correct in saying the Europeans don’t want our Army, President et al there… YET. Give it more time and more atrocities and they will come crying and begging for help once more…
        However, WHY do you call Mary the one who is ‘Mentally Ill’? You and your ilk are the ones who are deranged in your thinking. I’ll bet you even claim President Trump isn’t YOUR President, and while you may wish it not so, HE IS, if you are an American Citizen… Sorry to break the bad news.

        I guess we should not have gone to Europe in 1941, or ww1. Seems like you don’t want us untill your screwed. It happened several times don’t think you won’t need us again. Learn from your own history.look and see it is repeating today.

    “the billboard isn’t meant to incite religious animus”….”The issue we’re trying to make is the problem with Islam.”

    the immigration ban has none of the countries the hijackers were from even though the opening paragraph of the order gives 911 the reason for the ban.

    It’s odd! It’s OK to point an F-35 full of missiles, or an F117 loaded with bombs at these folk, but if you point a travel ban at the same people, OMG you’re a Muslim hater, a crazy, bigoted racist pig, especially the President of the United States. So where are the bombs going, Syria and Somalia? Yep! And which Muslim countries are in the travel ban?? Not Egypt, or Saudi Arabia, or Indonesia. Aha, now don’t expect that tiny light bulb over the collective liberal head to turn on, but for the rest of us, we’ll keep sending the airmail without a personal invite to return the favor. PS – Replace that bulb please, your consistently being in the dark has become annoying!

      Saudi Arabia is not listed as a terrorist state under the un or the obama administration however all the nations in tje ban are bu both listed as terrorist sponser states. You want to blame trump for not labeling saudia arabia as terrorists? Blame obama or bush

    The people who had prayers banned at ball games and the Ten Commandments taken out of schools are the same people are demanding worship space and prayer rooms in our schools.
    They are using political correctness to try and turn everything to their agenda.
    There are now and have been top ranked officials dominated by Evil, working constantly to try and take out what is good for America and more specifically Christians.
