SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

It's big, tall and yellow and if you travel along Southport Road in Spartanburg County you'll probably see it.

"It's an eyecatcher," Leo Kingsley said. "It's just hey - there it is."

Kingsley drives Southport Road often and said he's noticed the sign before.

"It's just Obama vs. the cross," he said.

The billboard has President Barack Obama's campaign symbol on it and a cross.

"I am a strong Christian and a believer in Christ," another driver, Walter Grady said.

The words on the billboard state "Time for a new revolution?"

"Everybody is entitled to their beliefs," Grady said.

There's also a website posted on the billboard. It is lc.org in red letters. The website takes you to information about the Liberty Counsel organization.

"He (Obama) has had a war on American and GeoChristian values," said Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of the group. He said the billboard shows the truth.

"We're urging people to engage in a revolution of ideas to get involved in the political process," Staver said.

He said the organization supports policies that protect liberty and Christian values, like prayer in schools and an anti-abortion message. He said those are views President Obama doesn't support.

"We have a revolution and it's called the voting booth," Michael Bailey said.

Bailey is the vice president with the group Upstate Atheist.

"I just think it's kind of almost sad in a way- that to feel like there's a point of a revolution in this country," Bailey said.

And even though he said he's not getting involved with the political message on the board, he said he doesn't agree with the organization's message when it comes to prayer in schools.

"I just think it's very unconstitutional," Bailey said.

He said he has concerns about the organization's message, especially prayer in schools.

However, some drivers say it's just another billboard.
