Anderson County votes to allow 'Honk if you love Jesus' above courthouse
Anderson County commissioners voted Monday to allow the display of the phrase "Honk if you love Jesus" above four entrances to the county courthouse. Commissioners approved the measure by a 14-0 vote, with two commissioners abstaining. It was the fifth time the issue has been before the County Commission. Much of the controversy surrounding the proposal has centered on whether the signs should be posted at all and on whether other mottos such as "My child is an honor student at Clinton Elementary School" and "Keep Clinton weird" should also be added. Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank told reporters that she hopes to have the new signage up on the courthouse in the next few weeks. The move follows a similar decision made in Cookeville in October. County commissioners there allowed the motto "I like big butts and I cannot lie" to be added above entrances of the Putnam County Courthouse.
