I think Christians who try hard to follow Jesus’s teachings are actually common, David R Miller. One thing I need to be very careful of is not over generalizing.

From where I sit, firmly ensconced in American Bible Belt, things can look very bad, indeed.

But kind and loving Christians are everywhere. One need look no further than to Medium writers and Christian clerics like John A. Giurin and David Montgomery. In fact, John has already thoughtfully commented in this thread.

It isn’t my intention to disparage Christianity itself — only to decry particular Christian institutions that have embraced LGBTQ stigmatization and hate speech.
