A church billboard on display in Pennsylvania purports to share a message from God that is sure to raise some eyebrows.
The sign, which reads, “I love sex,” was posted Wednesday by Restored Church, a non-denominational house of worship in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Restored Church’s goal is to focus on sex as a healthy element of marriage and to remove any shame that some might associate with it.
“It’s in every single sitcom. It’s on the radio.
