Residents from a Californian town have shown their support for the LGBT+ community after a Presbyterian church in put up a transphobic sign, which dead names Caitlyn Jenner and claims she “is still a man.”

LGBT+ activists gathered around the church in Weed, California, to condemn the billboard, which also alleges that “homosexuality is still sin.”

It is believed that Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church put up the sign on December 31.

“I think that we should show love, respect and tolerance to all individuals as part of our national identity.”

“The culture may change, the Bible does not,” adds the sign.

Protestors from the local community were quick to show their support for LGBT+ residents in the town.

A group assembled outside the church over the weekend with their own pro-LGBT+ signs.

“Jesus had 2 dads and he turned out FINE,” read one placard.

Speaking to KTVL, one activist said: “I’m here to support individuals of our community, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, or other elements that make people unique.

“I think that we should show love, respect and tolerance to all individuals as part of our national identity.”

Justin Hoke, pastor at Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church, however, defended the sign on social media.

He uploaded an image of the sign on Facebook on December 31.

“It is not possible to preach the gospel in short pithy statements,” he wrote in a comments beneath the image.

“I have used this sign for 7 years now to provoke reflection or make a strong point about a single truth. Such as this one: the culture does not determine truth God does.”

Hoke regularly posts anti-LGBT+ articles or opinions on Facebook.

On January 4, he posted a link to a LifeSite News article about a man, who is also a drag queen, being asked to leave a church in Chicago.

“Yes we are to love all, but come on. A person comes dressed in drag to a church service and they are not there seeking to worship God. They’re coming to rub their rebellion in God’s face,” wrote Hoke, responding to the article.

“I don’t want my children subjected to such perversion at such a young age.”
