Billboard quoting Hitler retracted by Alabama youth church group

A billboard featuring a quote from Adolf Hitler next to smiling children was taken down on Tuesday at the request of the group that paid for the ad in the first place: a children’s ministry in Alabama.

The group – Life Savers Ministries in Auburn, Alabama – requested the billboard, erected Friday near a popular shopping area, be taken down after the sign drew immediate criticism for quoting the Nazi leader to promote its services for under-privileged children.

“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future,” the billboard reads next to a photo of five children with arms locked.

In addition to quoting one of the Western world’s biggest villains in history, the billboard also quoted the Bible, reading, “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it."

Life Savers Ministries was founded in 1996 and works with children from local housing projects.

"We are pulling the billboard and certainly never intended to cause confusion. ... (Former US president) Herbert Hoover would have been a far better one to quote when he said, 'Children are our most valuable resource,'" Life Savers Ministries founder James Anderegg told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer.

"We are a children's organization and had honorable intentions and nothing less," Anderegg added.

The company that rented the billboard took the sign down after Life Savers Ministries reacted to the uproar.

"It was put up at client request and will be taken down at client request," said Hal Kilshaw, spokesman for Lamar Advertising.

[quote name='AL Nelson' time='04.06.2014 22:37']Yep.......an d the ill effects of a private education can never be removed: EXHIBIT A: George W Bush - he of the famous line "people misunderestimate my strategeries to deal with nukular profiteroles"[/ quote]

This is not a good example. Dubyah attended public school through the seventh grade. After that he attended prep schools that were happy to take his mommy's and daddy's money. It was too late by then. It's normally too late if one doesn't grasp learning by the 3rd grade. As you yourself demonstrated, his linguistic skills were frozen at the 3rd grade level.

Those who built the V-2 rockets that showered down on the U.K. were as pure as the driven snow

  


Thank you, Yes! Those Nazi's at NASA inspired an entire Generation of American Youth to pursue Math, Science, Engineering, and Computer Technology, over the previous mentality of idealizing the murderers of the Old West.

The American Youth went from worshiping murderers of the Old West, to idolizing the Technical Genius of those who supposedly sent the first V-2 rocket to the Moon.

It was better than the Jew infested sewer of Marxist jealousy we have now.

'He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future' - sounds like the slogan of the pseudo-liberal progressives currently running the U.S. They have single-handedly transformed the already mediocre U.S. education system into an instrument of social and political propaganda and conditioning. It takes a long time and personal dedication to efface the ill effects of a public education.
