The billboard that just a month ago bore a message stating “Homosexuality is a behavior. Not a civil right.” now reads “God Loves Gays” as one of several rotating advertisements.

The sign went up this week, and depicts a caricature the company paying for the billboard uses to depict their version of what God looks like in front of a rainbow, and bold, white letters stating “God Loves Gays.”

The billboard, located in the 6800 block of Telegraph Rd. near a Red Lobster, organic grocer and adult store, no longer has the “Homosexuality is a behavior…” message as part of the rotation.

According to the billboard, the most recent message was paid for by Mysterious Ways LLC.

It’s part of a national fundraising campaign that’s raised $16,000 for the billboard.

The billboard is one of three in the U.S. The other two are in Utah.

The fundraising page says “The purpose of these billboards will be to show everyone that all humans are equal and loved by God.

“There are so many young LGBTQ kids who face daily bullying just for who they are. Sadly all too often LGBTQ teens take their own lives due to the extreme lack of acceptance they face from their family, religious institution, or bigoted bullies. It is extremely important that this message of love is spread throughout the world.”
