I'd just think he'd flipped his lid I think!

could be either to alot of people but for me, if I'd seen him driving around I would have PMSL.

No, suzy, he's the author of the Chippenham and Malmesbury town guide. He can't get the gigs these days, y'see.

Who, Little Richard?

He must have done it for publicity as part of his election campaign

This is very Framley Examiner-esque, cod!

Not sure where the racism figures, but you can't really have people driving around with homophobic billboards on display. Most gay people I know would find it as funny as I did, though!

He could argue that he wasn't being homophobic, he was urging people to reject God so that they could become homosexual!

LOL what a nutter.
I should think it would offend any sensible Christian too, for spreading ludicrous rumours about God.

Offensive? Well it doesn't actually say that becoming a homosexual is a bad thing!

It wouldn't offend me. I think you would have to be pretty uptight to get offended by it. I would put him down as a nutter who may or may not be harmless. He wasn't inciting anything and I don't think anyone but a nutter would take him seriously. Having said that some people find the use of the term "nutter" to be offensive. Perhaps I should call him a "potential service user"?

I would complain if anyone left any bilboard outside my house though.

OMG!! I saw his campaign trailer thing drive past the other morning when I was dropping ds1 at pre-school, didn't hear what he was saying though.
