"Glad I don't feel 'safe'???????????"

Oh, Wes. Trying to worship in a place where the official 'policy' says that I am not a whole person, that says I cannot be ordained in holy ministry unless I promise to never have a life-partner/spouse, that says that sex is God's good gift to people but that I should never open/enjoy/"practice" that gift.............and I should feel "safe"???
Jesus and I can meet out under the sky and feel a lot safer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
