I realise my understanding of LGBTIQ not being sin and why…. will fall on deaf ears with most church people.
I also realise it is a hard job speaking up about this with secular society and people who do not believe in God.
But, I feel the need to speak up where I can. And I do. And I know I will encounter people disagreeing with me.
When I do speak up, it sometimes is exactly what someone needs to hear, as happened today. For that, I am thankful and it helps me to realise, I need to continue.
I spoke up today and it was confirmed by a man, that it “meant a lot to him”, to read my views and “this gay guy can get along with you any time any where. Thank you for speaking out! More need to. If more were like you we would not have to put up with the likes of the gay bashing ACL”
I am so sad to know how much ‘gay bashing goes on’ by church people and the Australian Christian Lobby.
But, I am glad to be able to help this man and anyone else, who may have read it.
For every 99 people who tell me I am wrong, 1 – will confirm it has helped them and I am hopeful that brings them closer to God.
I am okay with helping that 1 person. And showing what real Christian understanding and compassion looks like.
