Well, up until one of his two dads watched him die over hours and hours of torture, and didn't lift a finger to help him, despite the fact that he has total control over everything.

But other than that, the family turned out JUST FINE.  Well, up to that point.

why does having two dads automatically have to mean they're gay?

Take it easy everybody, stop trying to read your own personal agenda into this.  The sign is in reference to Jesus, the Mexican groundskeeper that the church uses to look after the lawn.  His mom and biological father divorced when he was 7, and his mother eventually remarried when he was 11.  His stepfather took him under his wings and treated Jesus as though he was his own son.

Except that he didn't have two dads; he had one mother and one father and one voice in his head/guy who 'gave him advice'.

The whole comparison is utterly stupid because it is simply _not the same_ as gay marriage. Two guys raising a kid is not like one guy and one disembodied voice raising a child.

This of course all based on the assumption that any of this actually happened.

Asshole "Christians" like you are more of an attack on Christian morals than real Christians who try to follow Jesus' message of unconditional love, acceptance, inclusion, humility, repentance, forgiveness, and redemption.

Really.  So "Jesus had two dads" is in no way a reference to the gay marriage argument?  Good thinking, I'm sure it was really a plea for Obama to stay out of Syria, and nothing at all about gay marriage.

yeah, but if you believe in the holy trinity, jesus is God, and the Holy Sprit. so basically he asked why had he abandoned himself. God the father crucified himself. also Jesus is his own father. and the father of whatever the fark the holy sprit is supposed to be. space ghost I guess. all of this should put the bible thumpers in west Virginia at ease.

Only when it is convenient.

My own close family has a member that is forever talking about jesus, all the good christ has done for him and his family, how everyone needs to get back to the basics of morality and get back in church and worship god, ect.  Real bible thumper.

He gets pretty pissed when I ask where Jesus was when he was cheating on his ex-wife with his current wife.

Were you born without a sense of humor, or did you have it surgically removed?

Of course it is a reference to gay couples (although not necessarily to marriage equality), but it is just as obviously NOT suggesting that the Anglicans think JHVH and Joseph were sexually involved.   It is a piece ofparaprosdokian rhetoric, in which the second part of the sentence causes the reader to re-think or re-evaluate the meaning of the first part of the sentence.  It's a classic literary device.

Christian theology teaches that God and Joseph were both Jesus' father.  Therefore, according to Christian theology, at least one person who had two fathers did pretty well for himself.

The implication is NOT that those two fathers were romantically or sexually involved with each other.  Rather, the implication is that people who are involved in same sex relationships are welcome at this particular church.  It is a humorous attempt to let people know that this particular church does not discriminate against gays.

Anglicans are pretty well over the map. A number of Anglican churches in Canada have broken Communion over the past several decades due to a lack of conservatism among the larger Anglican Communion. Notably, several in Vancouver tries to separate (and build ties with South American Anglican Churches) when the diocese started accepting gays, until they learned the churches were actually property of the Anglican Church of Canada and lost their lawsuit to keep them.

He did what he couldn't ask of Isaac, sacrifice his own son. It is a compelling story arc, though I stopped believing in divinity long ago. Wish it were true: would be nice to have an omniscient paternal figure watching over us all.

Fank: Nice True Scotsman, by the way.

Jesus did not have two fathers. Divinity is like, the whole point to Christianity.

If a man does not accept the divinity of Jesus, then it doesn't matter if he's married in a church, or has a vicar conduct his funeral -- it is more than a fair call to say he is not a true Christian.

Unitarians, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons -- these groups do not accept basic Christian beliefs in the first place.

Now, the BBC has a good page that covers Christianity without breaking down too deeply into separate denominational issues.

Your invocation of the No True Scotsman fallacy is not valid here.
