The billboard outside St. John's Anglican Church in Niagara Falls, Ontario reads: “Jesus had two dads and he turned out just fine!”

A photo of the sign went viral after it was posted on social-media website Reddit.

Lynne Marchant, the rector at St. John's, told Canada's The Niagara Falls Review that the female member of the church in charge of putting messages on the sign has been “overwhelmed” and “flabbergasted” by the attention the simple message has received.

“I think one of the parishioners had sent it to her,” Marchant said of the message.

“I don't find it offensive in any way,” she said. “It has done a lot of healing by those who may feel slighted by the church.”

“We have people in our congregation who are homosexual. We are an all-inclusive church, a family. No one cares what your sexuality is. Come on in, we don't see any difference,” she added.
