The Methodist pastor who put this on his message board claims he had no idea it would go all over the internet and he would receive so many messages. His intention, he says, was merely to point to the many different family arrangements he encounters in his work and to let people know they can all be successful.
He said he has received praise from those who thought he was endorsing gay marriage and bitter criticism from those who oppose it. The sign over all had a good outcome, he has concluded, because it got people talking about the issue and his church.
As a statement of fact, the Jesus story included two “Dads”. The stories of Jesus do not reveal any problem with his gender identity due to the two dads either.
Defenders of the faith might object to the entire premise of the “Holy Spirit” or “God” being considered a “Dad” in any common definition of the term, Dad. I would concede that point.
But, much Bible punditry takes things from one context and applies them to something else just like the “two dads” idea. For example, the passages that refer to two men lying together was sometimes about straight men impersonating gay sex acts. It seems like this part of the Bible, too, is often used in a misleading way.
All that being said, pointing out that Jesus had two “Dads” or two fathers is a good way to explain the story of the virgin birth. Anyway one tells it, it’s hard to believe.
