'Satan was the first to demand equal rights' says Va. church sign 
A church sign is causing controversy in Chesapeake, Virginia. It has people fired up and scratching their heads at the same time. In front of Taylor Road Baptist Church, the sign reads, "Remember, Satan was the first to demand equal rights." It had drivers along busy Taylor Road doing a double take. "When I drove by it, I wasn't sure I read it right. So, I did a u-turn," says Terri Young, who lives a few miles away. "I was frustrated and angry at the same time." The thought behind the statement is a reference to a passage from the Bible: Isaiah 14:12-17. But it's the words on the sign that have some nearby residents and commuters confused - Satan and equal rights. "Well, what group are they talking about? Are they talking about the gay community? Are they talking about minorities? Are they talking about women?" Young asks.
