With a government shutdown looming if Congress can't figure out a spending plan, some say the mopes aren't even close to agreeing on the smaller details.

Two churches near Toledo are arguing via billboard over whether or not being gay is a gift from god or just something that randomly happens and makes old people uncomfortable. From the AP:

Toledo's Central United Methodist Church posted a roadside billboard in April that said, "Being Gay Is a Gift from God," and that led the Rev. Tony Scott of the Church on Strayer to offer an opposing point of view, The Blade reported.

Scott's megachurch in Maumee bought nine billboards last week that proclaim, "Being Gay is NOT a Gift from God — Forgiveness, Love, and Eternal Life Are."

"I'm getting hate mail from lesbian and gay people, but my point is that I love them too much to let someone believe a lie," Scott said. "I love this city too much to let a lie be sown."

... Central United Methodist recently replaced its original billboard with another one that says, "Creating a Space for All God's Children Regardless of Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity."
