Seagate Community Chapel in Wilmington, NC is feeling the heat after news reports and photos of their sign circulated online.
The sign reads: "God loves gays but hates a perverted life style. Turn or burn."
The sign maker, Anna Benson, told local news channel WECT that she "loves the gays." She states that her signs are always straight from the Bible, and the pastor stands by any message she posts, as long as it's biblically accurate.
"We're going to teach the entire truth," said Heuring, "and I'll take the heat for it."
Feel free to contact the church and give them some heat:

UPDATE: The anti-gay sign at Seagate Community Chapel was vandalized Sunday afternoon. According to WECT:
Witnesses tell police a tall man took a hammer to the sign before leaving in a silver Ford Taurus. The car is reported to have bumper damage and a missing hubcap from the front left tire.
This happened after police broke up a peaceful protest held outside the church.
Wilmington Pride protested the sign's message Sunday morning. The organization supports homosexuals in the community. A member of the group wrote that the church's message "supports hate of homosexuality".
