"Sexual orientation is not a sin. Gender identity is not a sin. We are all created in the image of God."
For me, more than anything else—this statement is what I want to hear from our religious leaders. I want to hear the unambiguous pronouncement that people who are same gender loving, bisexual, transgender, non-gender conforming folk, otherwise and queer—are God’s wondrous gift.
I want to hear that we are not God’s mistake.
