In case you can’t read the billboard in the above photo, it says:
He alone, who owns the youth, owns the future. — Adolf Hitler
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. — Proverbs 22:6
Someone at Life Savers Ministries found the quote, thought it was a good one, and apparently had no idea that Hitler wasn’t the sort of person with whom you’d want to be associated.
Now that they’ve been made aware that approvingly citing Hitler is frowned upon, they’re taking the billboard down:
“We are pulling the billboard and certainly never intended to cause confusion. … Herbert Hoover would have been a far better one to quote when he said, ‘Children are our most valuable resource,’” founder James Anderegg told the Ledger-Enquirer. “We are a children’s organization and had honorable intentions and nothing less.”
Hitler, Hoover … it’s confusing.
