A church billboard that affirms homosexuality has gone viral. After Reddit user Reeb0k posted a photo of the sign online, it quickly gained hundreds of thousands of views. The controversial text on the placard reads, “Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine.” Not much information is provided along with the picture, but the sign on which it appears belongs to a “St. John’s Anglican Church.” According to the Reddit user, the house of worship is in his home city, but the name of that city isn’t mentioned in the post. In addition to the pro-gay message, a portion of the church’s address is present on the sign (the number “3428″ appears). After a quick web search, The Blaze discovered that the church is located in Niagara Falls, Ontario, in Canada. In an effort to confirm that the sign is, indeed, posted, we called the church office and phoned the Rev. Duncan Lyon, a member of the St. John’s clergy. His wife answered the phone and confirmed that the pro-gay message is posted outside of the church. When we asked for more information about the motivation behind it, she referred us back to the church office, adding, “I’m sure you can sort it out yourself.” The Blaze left a message on the house of worship’s general phone line and we are awaiting a response. Reaction to the church’s sign have been diverse, but many Reddit comments reflected a burning question that has nothing to do with the text’s sociopolitical message: Why was the photo tilted? User Razor 512, for one, quipped, “Some will ask, what would Jesus do, while no one truly knows what he would do, many will agree that he would hold the camera in the proper angle.” What do you think about the pro-gay message? Let us know in the comments section. The Blaze
