Being Christian AND Being Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgendered People: It Can Get Confusing!

From Queerty, there is an article about a Christian group protesting the the media portrayal of Christians as being "anti-gay."

Huh! I wonder where they got that idea? Could it be because of how many churches of the Protestant denominations drag their feet on welcoming people who are LGBT as full members in standing? Could it be because of how many Catholic and Orthodox churches drag their feet on welcoming LGBT people?

The frustration is that all of us who are Christians can be "clumped" together as being anti-gay by the mainstream media. Of course, there are some Christians who go around slandering those of us who are Christian and are created by God as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered people, who falsely call us "deviant" and "abomination." Some pastors call those of us who are Christian, and are gay or lesbian part of a "wicked phenomenon." I'm not sure who is hurting whom in this situation.

And then there are those of us who are people who are LGBT who also self-identify as Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu...

Well, you get my point.

Peace, Brett
