Solid article, and inspirational. I often draw parallels between Christian traditions of racism and Christian traditions of homophobia. I think as loving and moral people, regardless of our faith or lack of faith, we should understand that religion must not justify stigmatizing and hurting people.

Thank you for saying it so eloquently. A lot of us LGBTQ people are hurting right now, even those of us who are not Methodist, or even Christians.
