A church in Canada has found a novel way to spread its message of tolerance towards gay people and the results have gone viral!

A sign outside St. John's Anglican Church displaying the words, “Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine!” has been viewed over one million times after a user of the social entertainment site Reddit posted a photo of the sign online.

The church's location has been reported by US news site The Blaze as Niagara Falls, Ontario. And the wife of Reverend Duncan Lyon, a member of the St John's clergy, confirmed that the message was in front of their church. 

This message appears to be taking a lead from the Gosford Anglican Church in New South Wales, Australia, which posted an exact message a couple of weeks ago.

Father Rod Bower, a priest and outspoken supporter of Gay rights had also displayed another message to parishioners and passersby which read, “Dear Christians, some people are gay. Get over it. Love, God,” according to current affairs site Salon.com

Oops, I forgot to mention Saturday’s match between Celtic and Dundee United – given my immoderate excitement at Liverpool’s victory over the Red Devils! 

Predictably, Celtic won the match 1-0. Anthony Stokes had curled a free kick over the wall and past goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak, with the ball going in off the post in the 87th minute.
