Local church hopes pro-gay billboard will bring about tolerance

If you’ve driven down Monroe St. recently you may have stopped and did a double-take when you saw one message pop up on the electronic billboard. The message reads “Being Gay is a Gift from God.”

Ive read a number of posts and am quite relieved that hate and vile attitudes towards fellow human beings are alive and well in the the Christian world. One day those haters will realise God doesn't exist, all religion is cult control of the masses and when you die you die, lights out, life completed, the end. You will not even realise your petty life full of hate was wasted.

Peace and love to everyone x

As a gay teen (ignoring the braindead moron above me) I don't believe that being gay is a gift from any deity. Considering I don't believe in God, or hold any faith in religion, considering the hateful nature it has towards many minority groups.
I don't see being gay as a hinderance, or a boon. It's simply a neutral characteristic, like being brunette, or blue-eyed, or black. It's just a factor in life I have to deal with, and I just find it a shame that not every has the intelligence to understand it.
I reckon i'm about 200 years before my time, hopefully the dinosaurs of intellectual thinking will die out and hatred will too.
I couldn't agree more x

Being ignorant though, isn't.
It could be, I don't know. I just don't understand homosexuality.

I always like hearing from someone who never made a choice about what gave them a hard on, come on here and claim that everyone else made a choice at some point.

If that is what you want to pray, you go right ahead, but as for the rest of us, we know better. Everybody's sexual orientation is a gift from God, what you do with the one you are blessed with is the ONLY choice we get in that matter.

PS, it's nobody's fault but your own that you just don't get it.

It could be if the gift is the lesson of compassion. Obviously you didn't understand the lesson plan.

So of course you speak from personal experience?

Decided one day that all those woodies you popped in Jr. High showers were a choice did you?

62% of HIV-positive American men admit they have UNPROTECTED sex

62 per cent of those with HIV said they had had unprotected anal sex with a male partner, according to report

The report by The Centres for Disease Control, released last week, said unprotected anal sex increased from 2005 to 2011
Only 67 per cent of sexually-active men who have male sex partners reported getting an HIV test in the past year

More than half of American men with HIV have admitted to having unprotected anal sex with a male partner in the last year.


According to a report by The Centres for Disease Control (CDC) released last week, 62 per cent of those who self-reported being HIV-positive said they had done so.


The report, HIV Testing and Risk Behaviors Among Gay, Bisexual and Other Men who have Sex with Men (MSM), said this group represents the majority of people diagnosed with HIV.

And only 67 per cent of the sexually-active men reported getting an HIV test in the past year, according to CBS Atlanta.


In 2011, men who had sex with men accounted for at least half of persons diagnosed with HIV in all but two states.


Anal sex is cited by the CDC as having the highest-risk practice for HIV infection.
