Years ago the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio set aside operating budget funds for advertising. As part of this effort, the Diocese created slogans that were used on yard signs, bumper stickers, and billboards across the northern half of Ohio.
For two of these -- “Love God. Love Your Neighbor. Change the World.” and “God Loves You. No Exceptions.” -- the Diocese sought and received Federal Trademark protection. Trademark registration protects these phrases from use by parties whose values conflict with those of the Diocese of Ohio or The Episcopal Church, and allows the Diocese of Ohio to take action when necessary to prevent inappropriate use of the taglines.
The Diocese of Ohio desires to share these taglines with other dioceses and their congregations wishing to claim this common identity. The Diocese offers a License Agreement for these taglines at a nominal cost of one dollar ($1.00) for each tagline. If you have any questions or would like to have a License Agreement, please contact William A. Powel, III, Canon to the Ordinary
Bumper stickers with our taglines -- “Love God. Love Your Neighbor. Change the World.®” and “God Loves You. No Exceptions.®” -- are available. For members of the Diocese of Ohio, the cost for the bumper stickers is $1.00 each. Please contact Beth Bergstrom for more information or to place an order.
