“There are ways we can work together even if we have different positions on homosexuality,” she said. “Our local churches are working with people who have different positions on human sexuality, and they are still feeding people and clothing people and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.”

Baloney.

Anti-LGBT legislation leads to violence and then death of LGBT members. There can be no peace, no 'working together', with individuals who would, frankly, rather see LGBT people dead.

The LGBT community is fighting for its very life. We will not compromise.

I REFUSE to have anything at all to do with a denomination that in any way, shape, or form invalidates or demonizes the LGBT population.

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.'"
