I remember years ago seeing an inspiring advert for the United Church of Christ which largely was saying that we accept you as you are, rather than as we expect you to be.
Here’s a piece, about acceptance and the role in fighting hatred and intolerance of the clergy.
Apparently, according to the supposedly progressive Sojourners Social Justice Ministry, the advert was “taking sides” and so their group refused to air it. The idea that a priest would be clearly protective and supportive of all the members of his flock is “controversial”.
Please sign the petition asking the Sojourners to stop silencing LGBT people of faith.
Check out the work of Believe Out Loud who are trying to get a million christians to stand up for equality.
