Just being all KINDS of QUEER!

From one to the others!

A small Toledo church is taking a big step toward sparking public debate with a billboard campaign that proclaims, “Being Gay is a Gift from God.”

“We’re expecting a vigorous conversation in this community in many forms,” said Dan Rutt, a member of Central United Methodist’s lead team.

“Members of the congregation have experienced places and times where being lesbian or gay was tolerated — kind of ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell, I know God forgives you,’” Barnard said. “We’re saying, ‘This is the way God created you. There’s nothing to forgive.’ “

Both Mr. Rutt and Mr. Barnard, who described themselves as “straight allies” of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, pointed out that Central has had a long history of supporting gay rights. The church joined the denomination’s Reconciling Ministries Network, a national grass-roots organization of congregations supportive of LGBT rights, in 1984.

Look at the billb. It’s great! Power to Toledo, OH!
