blue bits. red rocks.

LGBT Christians have a profound understanding of Judeo-Christian story of faith. We believe in the mission of Jesus, in making a way for the outcast. We get it. We understand that that no one – not the lesbian, nor the Pharisee who excludes her – is beyond the reach of grace. And, of course – despite the provocative title of this blog post – it’s not just gay Christians. It’s all of the marginalized and sidelined, the people who don’t see the world in the same stark shades of black and white that the American church prescribes. It’s everyone who tires of the hypocrisy and discrimination and selfish warring done in the name of Jesus and says, “This is our faith too, and we won’t stand by while it is hijacked. We won’t allow voices of hate to speak for us.” Our faith is tested, refined by fire. It is real and actual – not illusory – and we live by it every day. We are going to rescue the Church from the power-hungry, the self-appointed gatekeepers, the ones who exclude and hold the gospel hostage and simply don’t get it. why gays are going to save the church
