Church sign: “The Kingdom of heaven is within – Legalize marijuana”
(KTVI) – Michael Allen of the Preservation Research Office snapped a pic while on a hike in the Metro East on Sunday. First Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church in Brooklyn Illinois has had a controversial sign up for some time. Their placard comes with a quote from the gospel of Luke with a modern twist. The sign says, “The Kingdom of heaven is within – Legalize marijuana”
The sign has been up since September 2011. The church has been out of business for some time. It is located near area strip clubs.
Medical marijuana is now legal in the state of Illinois.
