Gay rights post by Gosford Anglican Parish minster Rod Bower goes viral on Facebook

A GAY rights Facebook post by the Anglican Parish of Gosford has gone viral and become an internet hit. 

Father Rod Bower posted a photo of the church's sign board in Mann St with the message "Dear Christians, some people are gay, get over it, Love God" on Wednesday.

Within 24 hours, the post had more than 100,000 hits, 1000 shares and 3000 likes.

Father Bower said he was "overwhelmed" by the massive response.

"Normally one of my posts might get a few thousand views, but nothing like this," he said.

"This has gone international now - there are people liking it all over the world and it is just a little sign in Gosford."
