APPOMATTOX, VIRGINIA - A church sign in Virginia is drawing attention over a message that says: "America: Love it or Leave It."

ABC 13 reported Tuesday that the sign is posted out outside Friendship Baptist Church in Appomattox. The station reports hundreds of people have expressed support and opposition to it on social media.

Pastor E. W. Lucas says he wanted to make a statement about the political divisions in Washington. He said he plans to leave the sign up for a while after receiving favorable comments.
