Here’s a pastor in the United Church of Canada, responding to Dan Savage:
I’d love to get into a debate with you about this. I’d love to be able to argue that you’re wrong. I’d love to lay out my proofs that the majority of Christians around the world are working our collective asses off to support and celebrate gays and lesbians and folk who are bi and transgendered… but I can’t.
Because you’re right.
That isn’t to take away from the individuals, groups, congregations and denominations who do stand up—both in the world and with our “co-religionists”—and scream, “SIT DOWN, SHUT UP AND LISTEN, there is nothing wrong—nothing sinful—about being lesbian, gay, transgendered or bi.” […]
Sadly, I believe that a majority of Christians world-wide, here in Canada, and in your own country either tacitly or overtly support homophobia.
I’m sure he’ll be labeled a self-hating Christian for expressing these views, but I’m glad he had the guts to say it.
