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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. If you’re really adventurous, you could call the church directly and complain.
