One Vote Against Religious Banners

How long has it been that we've had to endure those idiots hovering behind every green, in every football and baseball stadium with their ever-present banners: John 3:16? Now I see they have been joined by other banners: Mark 8:36. How come we're not allowed to take pictures or make noises at golf matches, but they are free to muddy up our television screens with these annoyances?

No wonder man has developed resentment toward organized religion!

Editor's note: A spokesman for NBC said that the television networks try to avoid showing the banners, but that the people carrying them are very clever about getting on camera.
