Who can deny that the heart of marriage is the love and commitment between the partners? Can you? So, it makes perfect sense to me that public opinion in the United States has moved inexorably toward supporting marriage for same-sex couples.
Now that October 2011 has drawn to an end, I want to express my gratitude to
all the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people who were
inspired by the tradition of October being Coming Out month to come out
to themselves and those around them.
I love having a good conversation with someone who disagrees with me.
Over the years, I’ve had hundreds of these types of conversations –
mostly with colleagues in the church who disagree with me about the
place of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender faithful.
