I must have missed the gay activist organization that devotes all of it’s energies to the poor and homeless.
I must also have missed the throngs of gay, bisexual, and transgender people who want to work for a historical, theologically conservative charity.
Tolerance is a one way street now…
I’m an old, straight, white guy with a set of deep theological convictions sitting next to equally deeply ingrained cultural prejudices.
It’s often hard to separate one from the other…
Still, I have wrestled with this issue to try to come to a place of civil tolerance, understanding, and compassion, leaving behind the prejudices while holding to my religious convictions.
It isn’t easy.
When this sort of petty assault against an important part of our societal safety net happens, when it’s demanded that I give up my faith as well as my prejudices…it becomes almost impossible.
Perhaps we’re reaping what we’ve sown…in any case it appears that the “war” we’ve written and spoken of is now reality.
One again, everybody loses.
