On 24 July 2013, Father Rod Bower posted on Facebook a pro-gay rights church sign that stated, “DEAR CHRISTIANS, SOME PEOPLE ARE GAY. GET OVER IT, LOVE GOD.” The church sign was that of the Anglican Parish of Gosford, New South Wales, Australia. The post went viral. Father Bower said, “Normally one of my posts might get a few thousand views, but nothing like this.   This has gone international now — there are people liking it all over the world and it is just a little sign in Gosford.” The reaction to the post was “hugely positive.” Father Bower said, “I have had a number of phone calls and ran into people who have said, ‘Good on you. This is really great,’ also. I think it shows that it’s an important issue and that a lot of people have spiritual questions that are not being met by traditional forms of Christianity.” He added, “The conservative view is not the only view.  Marriage equality is a hot issue at the moment and it seems the church is struggling to get over this issue. I am reflecting on what the spirit of God might be saying in a modern world.”
