G-d is Leading You to Love

As The Way Forward Commission continues to pray and wait to 'see where G-d is leading us', Christians following the way of Christ know that the answer is always 'love'. Christ leads us to love.

Whenever the church enshrines hatred toward any group, as it has towards the GLBT community for the last some fifty years, one can be sure we are not following Christ.

I am disgusted by these Way Forward Commission reports. GLBT people being murdered, and commiting suicide in despair, due to Christian hatred, yet the Commission is taking its dear sweet time to make a decision whether to love the GLBT community or not.

Notable Quotes 


"... Sometimes the gospel confronts us with values that are counter to a white supremacist, nationalist, militaristic, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, anti-environmental, or ableist agenda. Even without mentioning a specific president, a sermon that preaches the values of welcoming the immigrant, obeying the commandment not to murder, lifting up 'the least of these,' or valuing black lives can be mistakenly perceived as promoting a 'liberal agenda.'"

– Leah D. Schade, "What to Do When Parisioners Leave ... Because of Politics."
