MEBANE, N.C. You shall not make for yourself an idol, the Bibles Second Commandment reads.
Now a new billboard going up along Interstate 85/I-40 will include the quote, along with a photo of a pile of guns and ammunition.
The billboard is from the North Carolina Council of Churches, a statewide organization representing 18 Christian denominations in the state and 6,200 individual congregations. About 1.5 million North Carolinians are members of congregations under the Councils umbrella, the council says.
