PHILADELPHIA -

A controversial billboard along I-95 in Philadelphia now has a group of ministers questioning its message.

FOX 29 first told you about the billboard last month.

The sign, which reads, "thou shall not commit adultery" with the "not" crossed out, has created concern among neighboring residents and even a class of third graders. The billboard advertises the website Arrangementfinders.com, a Toronto based Internet dating site.

On Tuesday, the group of ministers protested the billboard outside of an ad agency in South Philadelphia.

In a statement released by the dating website, a spokesperson said "We don't expect anything to happen to the billboard, we don't expect it to come down because there is no legal reason for the board to come down, it's freedom of expression."
