Racism and gender/sex issues are different

Where are the scriptural references that support the complaints lodged by these panelists? I suggest that Jesus and the apostles directly addressed questions of racism in the Jew/Gentile conversation, whereas references to gender identity & sexual orientation are rare. Certainly these 2 issues cannot be tied together except outside of scriptural bounds -- but then isn't that the issue for Progressive clergy and lay members? Change or ignore scripture that doesn't apply adequately to today's issues, written by white men and used to uphold white male supremacist policies. I for one pray that you can hear clanging cymbals amidst your conversations, and that the Spirit will draw you back toward God rather than to society's shifting ideas.
