SMITHFIELD, N.C.—The billboard said its message is from Satan. What it really does is direct people to the website of a new church. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported the message on the billboard reads "Don't visit http://www.ComingNovember2010.com "and is signed Satan.
The website redirects visitors to the home page of The Bridge Church, which is starting a campus in Smithfield with a service Thursday night at Johnston Community College.
Church office manager Jamie Cooper said more than 2,000 people visited the website last week. Cooper said the church got the idea from another church's campaign.
