Pastor Posts Anti Gay Sign Aimed At Lesbian Couple Sparks Protests Outside Church

A Louisiana pastor found his church the subject of a peaceful demonstration protesting his decision to put up an anti-gay sign in his front yard that appeared to target his lesbian neighbors. 

The protest was prompted by a Facebook post shared by Lynda Slimer of Benton, La., who said that she, her wife, and two daughters came home to find the sign in their neighbor’s yard. The sign features the international ‘No’ symbol over the Gay Pride flag with the world “God forbids homosexuality, so should we.” Bible verses condemning homosexuality appear at the bottom of the sign.
Slimer’s neighbor is Rex Cornwell, the pastor of the Bossier Church of Christ.
Slimer said in the post that she believes the yard sign was prompted by Cornwell’s realization that she and her wife are not roommates.
“We’ve lived here a year, I’ve baked them cookies, invited them into our home and introduced them to our family,” Slimer wrote about the pastor and his family. “They have waved to us as they come and go and we have talked about the weather. They’ve told us if we ever need anything to just come knock on their door. All thrown out the window because they realized that we are wives and not roommates. This is not a representation of God. Jesus would not do this.”
