TULSA, Oklahoma -- A Tulsa church is fighting fire with fire, at least as far as a nearby billboard is concerned.

The 29th and Yale Church of Christ is using its marquee to respond to the billboard which is promoting the television show Big Bang Theory on the Tulsa CW.

The message on the marquee reads "Big Bang, Just Theory Genesis 1.1 Says God Created."  

The billboard nearby states that the TV show airs Monday-Friday on the CW at 6 and 6:30 p.m.

The program's name is a reference, in part, to the Big Bang Theory about the beginning of the universe. 

The church's office administrator, Derek Bullard, said he felt the church needed to counter the billboard so he came up with the response and put it on the church's marquee.

Bullard says church members have been supportive of the marquee message.
