BreakingBlacknews.com has learned that an Alabama church Pastor named Mike McClure Jr., 29, strategically placed a “strip for me” billboard sign right next to a local strip club to target African-American males.
The ROCK Church of Birmingham bought billboard space in 10 locations throughout the city in hopes of sparking peopleâ€™s interest in the Bible and, ultimately, affecting change in the community.
The billboard towering over a gentlemenâ€™s club in Birmingham, Ala., reads â€œStrip for Me.â€ The quoteâ€™s attribution? Jesus.
The location thatâ€™s getting the most notice is directly over the Palace Gentlemanâ€™s Club, where the verse from Hebrews 12:1 certainly commands attention.
â€œWith â€˜Strip for Me,â€™ really weâ€™re talking about Jesus,â€ church Pastor Mike McClure Jr., 29, told ABCNews.com, referencing the New Living Translation version of the Bible. â€œStrip off every weight of sin that slows you down. How many times have we said, â€˜My life is moving so slow?â€™ Maybe there are some things that you need to strip off.â€
