Apparently reaction has been mixed, but not in the way you might think. Many applaud the diversity, some felt they were "misusing the image of servicemen", and still others believe it would be offensive to Muslims. For a change, the Council on American-Islamic Relations seems unfazed and actually rather pleased, for obvious reasons.
“I think that that is a worthy image which is designed to spark debate on the issues of races and religion and ethnicity,” said Ibrahim Hooper, the national communications director for the Council of American-Islamic Relations.
Akbar Ahmed, chair of Islamic studies and professor at American University in Washington DC, said that because the billboard depicted the couple in “a very classic, matrimonial pose,” it was not intended to cause outrage.
Billboards like this are going to get responses,” Ahmed told Al Arabiya News.
One of these billboards will eventually be headed your way.
