Thanks, John A. Giurin! I appreciate the support enormously. I’ll leave you to counter the “very bad theology” while I try raising consciousness in other ways. Someone told me the other day that ending this kind of stigmatization is only going to be possible when older generations of religious leaders die off. Part of me hopes that’s not true, that things can happen faster. Another part of me worries that it won’t be enough.
