From Ohio, the state that gave us Rep. John Boehner, Gov. John Kasich, and Rep. Jim Jordan, comes an ongoing and sometimes contentious debate in churches regarding homosexuality thanks to 10 Toledo-area billboards proclaiming competing messages.
After Toledo’s Central United Methodist Church posted a single roadside billboard in late April that said, “Being Gay Is a Gift from God,” the Rev. Tony Scott of the Church on Strayer felt compelled to offer an opposing point of view.
The Maumee megachurch this week bought nine billboards that proclaim, “Being Gay is NOT a Gift from God — Forgiveness, Love, and Eternal Life Are.”
