This sums up the anti-gay movement perfectly.

Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct—as irrational animals do—will destroy them.” Jude 1:10

  1. Being gay is not a choice. 
  2. There are gay Christians.
  3.  Gay couples do enter into long-term, committed, loving, and monogamous relationships. 
  4. Every word translated as “homosexual” in the modern versions of the Bible is speaking of same sex behavior in an extreme circumstance. 
  5. The church is not offering a model of being gay and Christian and living a virtuous life before God. 
  6. Asking gay people to deny their natural sexual orientation is destructive. 
  7. Bisexual people are attracted to both sexes in varying degrees.  
  8. There is no “radical gay agenda” and no demand for “special rights.” 
  9. he loss of gay believers to the Church has been tragic. 
  10. The loudest message the gay community hears from Christians is one of intolerance and hatred.

I am an openly lesbian pastor and often blog about what it means to live daily as a Queer Christian. I offer this link as a resource and would love if you would spread the word.

The former archbishop compared the struggle for LGBT equality to South Africa’s battle to end apartheid.

"I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven," Tutu said, according to Australia’s Herald Sun. ”No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place… I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.”

If you don’t know who Tutu is and how renowned he is, you should learn more about him.

A member of my family recently posted a “10 things people should know about homosexuality,” which was an article, by a pastor, that was very homophobic in nature. It made me, a queer Christian, incredibly angry. So I sat down and wrote out a rebuttal using the Bible (and a few resources you wonderful folks provided) to debunk the list and create a new one supporting our community. Anyway, thought you’d like the link to the post: http://disgruntledchristian.tumblr.com/post/55891842870/dear-pastor-mike

Thanks guys! You’re doing such an awesome job. :)

I quite like what this person has written.
