Some billboards on interstate 96 and in downtown Lansing are mixing religious verse with an economic plea and reactions are mixed as well.
The signs ask a higher power to, "Forgive us our sin of being dependent upon the automobile industry."
The text further asks to restore invention, productivity and prosperity.
According to the advertising company that placed the ads there are four signs -- including three in mid-Michigan.
The person who placed the ads did not return our request for an interview.
