FRANKLINTON, La. Â â€”Â Residents of a small Louisiana town are fighting back after the ACLU won a lawsuit over signs the town putÂ on public property that proclaimed their faith in God.
The American Civil Liberties Union sued the town of Franklinton and forced town officials to remove four signs from public property that said, "Jesus Is Lord Over Franklinton."
Now, in a movement to have their own say, the town of 4,000 has posted more than 1,000 signs on lawns and store fronts that express their faith in God. The most popular sign says, "Jesus is Lord of All."
A local signmaker has sold about 2,800 more to people from surrounding towns, and a traveling salesman has started hawking them in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
