the law is the law, they should get a permit. otherwise people that live next to the interstate could put up any sign they want to and just think about the wildest things that people COULD do, if they took the notion to.

besides, if they really believe in putting up signs for people to see they would make the extra effort to get the permit imo

We must have laws. Without law and order there would be total chaos. I can only imagine what the countryside would look like, if everyone put up signs expressing their feelings. Statements on signs go beyond freedom of speech.

well in my opinion if it's been there 5 years then leave it alone. Probably the only ones who want it down are the ones who are doing something they shouldn't be and don't want to be reminded their going to hell if they don't stop.

I have nothing against religious signs, but if quotes are taken from the bible, they should be rightly quoted. Take a look at the one just outside Scottsville, on 231 B.G. Rd. See if you can find the misquote. Don't do this if you are driving. Lol.
