I am a believer in Jesus Christ who stands with my LGBTQ friends. God created each of us to be special human beings who are unique and different. We are all created in His image, we are all equal in his eyes and we are all commanded to love each other as we love Him.
I know many people of faith who are Gay and Lesbians who are giving, loving and good. Perhaps we should look at our beliefs in a modern context that is inclusive of those who have been on the fringes of life.
I believe in equality of men and women and their rights to be who God made them to be no matter what that may look like. As communities celebrate PRIDE, I salute those who are choosing to love and live fearlessly everyone, no matter what.
