A frame grab of the sign from video at WBRC.   (WBRC)

(Newser) – A billboard near a "gentlemen's club" in Birmingham screams out "strip for me" to passersby, which is notable mainly because it was put up not by the club but by a local church, reports WBRC. The pastor of Rock Church is paraphrasing a line from the Bible's book of Hebrews I, in which people are asked to strip away their sins and encumbrances to serve Jesus. The pastor says his attention-grabbing stunt has a simple purpose: He wants guys to think twice about going into the club and spend that time with their families instead.

The main differance is you will find a more honest and well balanced crowd at the strip club.

Uhh okay, as a passer by i would see it as a promotion for the club. Yeah it has the church on there but it says STRIP FOR ME, thats all most will see. Free advertisement for the club.
