Police Investigate Disappearance of Billboard

Lexington police said Thursday they would investigate the disappearance of a controversial billboard message that denounced homosexuality and abortion. The message on a billboard appeared last week and cited Bible passages beneath the statements "Homosexuality is an abomination" and "Abortion is murder." The vinyl sign, which listed a phone number for Bluegrass Church of Christ in Scott County, was missing Thursday, leaving a blank billboard. Police contacted the church and took a theft report, spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.
