Australian progressive church uses signs to say: ‘Some people are gay, get over it, love God’
A progressive Anglican church in Australia has been using its signs to preach tolerance towards gay and lesbian people.
The Anglican Parish of Gosford, has seen viral attention online since posting pictures of its signs, which often include messages of support for issues such as marriage equality, LGBT rights, and women’s rights.
Church leader Rod Bower, a longtime supporter of equal marriage, told the Daily Telegraph: “This has gone international now — there are people liking it all over the world and it is just a little sign in Gosford,
“The conservative view is not the only view. … Marriage equality is a hot issue at the moment and it seems the church is struggling to get over this issue. I am reflecting on what the spirit of God might be saying in a modern world.”
