New Zealand Church Ads Dub Christmas the “Time for Jesus to Come Out”
St. Matthew’s Church in Auckland promote acceptance and lack of discrimination
St. Matthew's church in Auckland, New Zealand published this series of ads introducing gay Jesus to the public. Apparently, the church, also known as St. Matthew-in-the-City, believes that Jesus never got the chance to show his true orientation to the world.“It’s Christmas. Time for Jesus to come out,” their campaign tagline reads.
Reverend Glynn Card explains that they were trying to show the world that it wouldn't have meant anything to Christians if Jesus were gay, hence promoting acceptance and lack of discrimination.
“Would it make a difference if he was gay? Would that change the picture for you? Would it mean what we revere about him changes?,” Card asks, according to Towleroad.
Earlier today, I wrote about a couple in Colombia that prepared a gay Nativity scene for Christmas, in which they put in two Josephs and no Mary.
