Ohio children's hospital pulls down billboards after complaints over common slang.

Is it harmless slang, or blasphemy?

Ohio's Akron Children's Hospital has opted to drop "OMG" from future advertising after a few complaints over its new billboard.

The billboard reads "OMG! There's an Akron Children's ER in Montrose!" and looks down upon a busy intersection.

Blogger Cindy Orley felt the sign was a slam against God and began writing about it last week.

She and her father, a local minister, voiced concerns to Children's Hospital.

Hospital leaders say they meant no disrespect and received few complaints but, nevertheless, they will drop OMG from future advertisements.

The Montrose billboard was already scheduled to come down October 2.
