ALEXANDER CITY, Ala. (AP) — Central Alabama Community College baseball coach Don Ingram resigned after the school removed two signs bearing religious messages from the outfield fence.

The 8-foot by 12-foot signs, sold to sponsors for $1,000 apiece, were taken down after the community college received complaints because of their religious nature.

An individual paid for a sign reading "John 3:16" that was sponsored by the school's Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter. The second sign, sponsored by Prospect Baptist Church, read: "True success is finding out what God wants you to do, then doing it."

"I resigned because I will not compromise my commitment to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ," Ingram said in a letter mailed to his latest signing class. He added that he didn't fault school administrators for the decision.

I post articles this way not to advertise for sites, but a lot of forums I'm associated with use the "3 Paragraph" rule. Which is that you only post the first 3 paragraphs so you do not infringe copyright violations. I didn't see anything in the rules about this.

Please feel free to correct me if I've overlooked something.

It looks like that same old antichrist spirit again- you could put any other religion up there and never hear a peep but those demonically manipulated souls cannot abide the Name of Jesus Christ.
