New Church Billboard Gives Jesus a Rainbow Halo and Urges Him to Come Out

St-Matthew-in-the-City is the Auckland, New Zealand church known for their support of equal rights for the LGBT community and putting up the best billboards ever.

They just put up their latest one and it’ll no doubt stir up some controversy:

[Rev. Glynn] Cardy said that he hoped the billboard would draw attention to the debate on gay marriage.

“There is almost nothing in the record of his teachings about sexuality while there is plenty about the perils of being rich,” he said.

“Certainly he always supported the marginalised in society.”

Well, that’s one way to combat the anti-gay rhetoric we tend to hear from Christian churches, so more power to them.
