A sign outside St. John's Anglican Church [in Niagara Falls, Ontario] displaying the words, “Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine!” has been viewed over 1,000,000 times after a user of the social entertainment site Reddit posted a photo of the sign online... The message appears to be taking a lead from the Gosford Anglican Church in Australia, which posted a similar message a few weeks ago.
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up or just got out of jail.
There's room for everyone at St. John's
Meanwhile, there has been a 'Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine!' Facebook page in existence since August 27, 2010. It notes:
Parenting advice from the Bible:
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."
Psalm 137:9 (KJB)
Ironically enough, it was the family structure of Jesus' life that defies the "traditional" notion of the archaic nuclear family.
Plus, by denying the legal protection and perpetuating hate against non-traditional families, the "family values" crowd are actually depleting and destabilizing perfectly functioning families.
Spread love, not hate.
