Alabama church signs iReport: 'Sermons in a Sentence'

Among the submissions we received for CNN's recent church sign iReport was a voice-tracked montage from an Alabama-based iReporter who calls herself amandawriter.

"After seeing the church signs assignment, I had to take a drive this afternoon around my region here in central Alabama," she says. "There are so many churches - and so many stereotypes about the Bible Belt, especially its supposed religious intolerance - that I wanted to see what the signs actually reflected. What I discovered might surprise you."

More background on Amanda's iReport here.

And if you haven't yet, check out the post from our pastor/iReporter on how and why he devises church sign messages.

    I agree with 'bighead.' In her introduction, she obviously portrayed preconceived biases about Southerners and the religious. I'm glad she took the time to educate herself. I find it interesting that the main ones that preach diversity are sometimes the most intolerant. Would this iReporter ever attend a service? Churches contain more information than the signs that advertise for them.

    She's a funny one to talk about intolerance. She was pretty judgmental in her pre-determined views of southern churches.

    Why did nobody tell me that Avantasia has two new CD's out?! The Scarecrow was one of the best CD's I've ever heard, I had no idea it was a trilogy!
