Holy Toledo! Ohio Churches In Ad Battle Over God And Gays


OMG, another blasphemous billboard controversy in Ohio! Back in April, the Central United Methodist Church of Toledo put up a sign that read, “Being gay is a gift from God.”Another local house of worship, the Church on Strayer, last week shot back with nine billboards proclaiming, “Being gay is NOT a gift from God. Forgiveness, love, & eternal life are.” The word “not” is rendered in bold-red all caps, lest anyone misunderstand. Says Strayer Rev. Tony Scott, “I love everyone. There’s nothing in that billboard about hate.” I’m guessing he’d put “everyone” and “nothing” in red if that quote ever makes it into billboard form. Central UMC’s Lynn Brown says, “People have the right to express their faith the way they see fit—and I think it helps the community to know where the churches stand.” The congregation recently debuted a new billboard that reads, “Creating a space for all God’s children regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.” Will the rival church respond? Keep watching the skies above I-75 for a sign.

  1. Good for the church on Strayer, people need to stand up for Christian morals! Morals that were made by God and published int the bible.
