NIAGARA FALLS, Ont.--A picture of a sign outside an Anglican church in Niagara Falls that sends a message of inclusivity when it comes to homosexuality has gone viral.
The billboard outside St. John’s Anglican Church reads: “Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine!”
An image of the sign caught worldwide attention this week after it was posted on the social-media website Reddit.
The post gained hundreds of thousands of views. It received more than 15,900 positive votes and more than 14,300 negative votes.
According to Christian faith, Jesus is the son of God, but was partly cared for on Earth by his birth mother’s husband, Joseph.
“I don’t find it offensive in any way,” said St. John’s rector Lynne Marchant.
“We have people in our congregation who are homosexual. We are an all-inclusive church, a family. No one cares what your sexuality is. Come on in, we don’t see any difference.”
