Because gay Pride wouldn’t be gay Pride unless the MCC offended some right-wing motorists

Dallas Pride must be getting close, because the Metropolitan Community Church of Greater Dallas has again taken out billboards on area interstates saying — as The 33 News puts it in the above report — that “Jesus loves gays!”

This year’s billboards went up last week along Interstate 35, one near Walnut Hill and one near Regal Row. One billboard says, “Jesus affirmed a gay couple” and the other says, “The early church welcomed a gay man.”

Last year the MCC church took out similar billboards on Interstate 30 as part of the “Why Would We?” campaign.

“We knew that they were provocative and we went with a billboard that would be provocative in order to get dialogue,” MCC Pastor Colleen Darraugh explains. “If it’s not, people don’t talk about it.”

One woman tells The 33: “I don’t think it should be on a billboard. I think that if people have opinions they should keep them within their circles.”

But our new BFF Debbie Clark gets the last word: “In today’s world it’s accepted, and if people don’t accept it, I think something’s wrong with them.”
