SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah activist says Salt Lake City’s two major outdoor advertising companies have refused to carry a billboard that reads “God Loves Gays.”

Mark Lawrence of Restoring our Humanity says representatives from Reagan Outdoor Advertising and Yesco called the subject matter too controversial.

KUTV reports Lawrence is still looking for spots for the billboards, but says they may end up in more out-of-the-way locations. The billboard design comes from an Internet artist who calls himself “God” and has been attempting to put up similar signs around the country.

Yesco said in a statement it carefully evaluates all advertising requests with “community standards” in mind.

Dewey Reagan says some of Reagan’s contracts with landowners limit what can be posted and the decision wasn’t a comment on the issue.
