Just ignore it it's only a sign. And no, no-one should be fined for offending people.
Should churches that post offensive messages on their walls/billboards be fined? watch

There is offensive and then there is controversial - just because some or others don't agree with it does not mean it will be deemed offensive. The church will just say they are expressing freedom of speech which neither causes offence to the reasonable person nor incites or encourages religious or racial hatred.

How on earth is that offensive?
Its not like they are imposing some radical views.

So this church that I go past every morning on my way to university and my way back has this tendency to put up controversial messages on their side wall every month. This month it's "Jesus: No one comes to the Father except through me" in huge writing which I found rather alarming. The month before that it was "Let the church help you" or some words to that effect.
Don't you just think that this is offensive? Not only to atheists but to other religions as well?

fining for offence is dangerous, surely not only churches should be fined but any organisation/person (why discriminate against a religious one). so what ever some posts in a public place ie facebook or TSR can be sued. this is then making preventing the right of freedom of expression. Also any view can be "offensive", "Jesus: No one comes to the Father except through me" you have pointed out could be offensive yet saying the opposite could offend others so both would be fined.
Also there seems to be the confusion between offense and Disagreement, they are not the same.
