Australia – Anglican Priest’s Billboards Go Viral

The Gosford Anglican Church in New South Wales is attended by some 200 people only, but the church’s priest, Father Rod Bower, easily draws a crowd of millions online, thanks to his social media following who want to read his larger than life advice that he places on billboards outside the venue.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Fr Rod Bower says his controversial, internet-famous church signs do what Jesus did - challenge inju <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Ultrawoman (@Ultrawoman2) <a href="">May 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

Father Bower is quite outspoken when it comes to gun control though, and mostly shocks his US following. In the aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school shooting back in February of this year, he wrote: "When will they love their kids more than their guns".

As from yesterday, given the Santa Fe shooting, he wrote: “In America, an amendment is worth more than a child.” Another statement sure to shock.

Father has been serving the church for over twenty years now, but only wrote his first billboard back in 2013, when he had performed the last rites for a dying gay man. At the time, he was surprised to hear that the man’s life partner had not been invited to the ceremony because the family feared offending the church.

That’s when Father Bower started writing.

Father Bower said: "I was so disturbed by the culture that would have led people to believe that, that when I got back to the church I went and put up that sign."

It stated: "Dear Christians, some ppl are gay, get over it, love God".

"We have this instrument out the front that when combined with social media helps do what the Christian church should be doing, and that is creating a more just society."

"That is the gospel, that's what Jesus was on about, challenging injustice, lifting up the poor, including the excluded."

Matthew 19:4-6 English Standard Version (ESV)

4 He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, 5 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
