AKRON -- Akron Children's Hospital has opted to drop "OMG" from future advertising after a few complaints over its new billboard in the Montrose shopping area.

The billboard reads "OMG! There's an Akron Children's ER in Montrose!" and looks down upon the busy intersection of Route 18 and Cleveland-Massillon Road.

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.
