The Washington Blade reported today on
a small Toledo church which has taken a big step toward sparking public debate with a billboard campaign that proclaims, “Being Gay is a Gift from God.”
From writer David Yonke's piece:
The digital billboard began displaying the slogan early Monday...The church's part-time pastor said the billboard message will be linked to a four-week sermon series.
“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,’” he said. “We’re saying, ‘This is the way God created you. There’s nothing to forgive.’ “
“The church is incomplete without LGBT people in it, and we want the church to be complete.”
Thank you to this small church for taking such a big stand. Yes, Gay is a Gift
