It’s not unusual for churches to put messages on signage outside their places of worship. One example in Marseilles is causing a stir.
The First Church of God is using its outdoor sign to say, “Jesus willingly died for you…unlike Epstein who didn’t kill himself.” It’s a reference to the death of financier Jeffrey Epstein who died in jail while awaiting a possible trial for sex trafficking of minors. His death has been ruled a suicide but some including Epstein’s lawyers question if he died at his own hands. Conspiracy theorists wonder if he was silenced to save dirt being spilled on well-to-do acquaintances of Epstein.
In response to the message, a post on the Marseilles First Church of God’s Facebook page simply says “Just sayin’”.
