Would Jesus Discriminate?

A church group (who also have a website “Would Jesus Discriminate?“) has put up four billboards along a freeway in north Texas that quote the Bible in support of gay rights. Here’s one of them:

gay billboard

You can see more of them here and also here.

But what made me laugh was this story in the local news about Christine Lutz, who was so offended by the billboards that she fired off an angry email saying “how dare you take the scriptures and twist it to fit your needs”.

As one blogger said, “My irony meter just exploded.”

    That is one of the greatest lines of irony ever. Great use of billboards. I hope the story starts showing more life nationally.

    Jesus also didn’t say anything about rape, or bestiality.

    What Bible are you reading from anyway?? If are reading God’s Word – KJV – check out Romans 1: 22-32 (There is no way a Holy and Just God ok’s the sin of homosexuality and more than he would ok adultery and fornication! Read Romans 1:22-32 – I honestly dont see how one could twist those verses to say God is ok with the sin of homosexuality! God hates this sin like other sins!!

    Yes, the Mathew text it’s right, but in the whole context it talks about the condition of marriage and celibacy of some few men, I am Christian, and I know thah the Bible does not approve the homosexuality, but I am a citizen and I refuse the discrimination about the gays, and the refuse of give them civil rights like the marriage
