St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Ferndale has a sign in front of their church that has been quite controversial lately. Rather than posting uplifting messages that might inspire people to love their neighbors, this church has instead posted hateful, bigoted, and downright racist messages.
It’s not what Jesus would do at all.
So they have a sign, but we have a website. No one said life is fair.
If you’ve been disturbed by their sign there are a few things you can do to fight back:
- Write an editorial to the Ferndale Enterprise. Several people have responded with good rebuttals lately. Let people know that Bramwell’s messages are not in the spirit of Ferndale.
- Report the church to the IRS as they have broken the law by getting involved in attacking political candidates who are running for office. We’ve made it easy by doing all the research. All you have to do is download this prefilled complaint form, fill in your contact information, and email it to the IRS address on the form.
- St. Mark’s Lutheran Church is a member of the Missouri Synod. You can contact their division office for California/Nevada/Hawaii to register a complaint about the bigoted and racist messages they post, as well as their abuse of their 501(C)(3) non-profit status. Phone: 866-264-6079
- If you’re really adventurous, you could call the church directly and complain.

Eternal life must be appealing to a large segment of the world’s population. It’s certainly the carrot on a stick that enables religious people, especially Christians, to swallow the huge swaths of idiocracy they have to in their quest to … Continue reading →
What we really need to protect Ferndale’s students from is the brainwashing they receive from their parents and pastors like Tyrel Bramwell. There should be a mandatory class in all schools that would be a critical thinking class that is … Continue reading →
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now … Continue reading →
Yes, let’s return to Jesus shall we? Is there any record of what Jesus thought of gay people? No there isn’t. Christians who attack gays would like to think he condemmed them, but don’t you think if attacking gays was … Continue reading →
Every Sunday Tyrone Bramwell literally wraps himself in what he considers god’s cloth so that he can appear as an moral authority in front of his assembled flock. In reality he is wearing what most would consider a dress, if … Continue reading →
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did … Continue reading →
I covered how ridiculus the concept of baptism is just last week. Nothing has changed in the last seven days to make the idea of baptism any less of a con.Continue reading →
What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all … Continue reading →
