Toledo Church: Being Gay is a Gift From God
A small church in Toledo, Ohio has spent $1,500 for a one month commitment to a digital billboard that reads “Being Gay is a Gift from God.”
“The Rev. Bill Barnard, Central’s part-time pastor, said the billboard message will be linked to a four-week sermon series, and the overall campaign goal is “to make a leap beyond tolerance.”
“Members of the congregation have experienced places and times where being lesbian or gay was tolerated — kind of ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell, I know God forgives you,’” Barnard said. “We’re saying, ‘This is the way God created you. There’s nothing to forgive.’”
They will continue the campaign as long as funds are available.
Always reblog proof that not everyone who’s religious is an intolerant nutcase
This gives me faith in humanity.
Being religious and being human. These people are doing it right. <3
This is why I continue to follow the Methodist church.
I don’t follow any church, but that’s awesome
