UPDATE: At the Porterville City Council meeting on June 11th, an item was added to the agenda for next weeks’ meeting, June 17th. From GayPorterville: That agenda item is to rescind the proclamation that we the LGBTQ community received just last Tuesday. Pending the City Attorney’s counsel on whether the City Council has the authority […]
While in Florida, I met a Facebook friend that I had been connected with for two years. The Gay Christian Network Bible Study Group Orlando had graciously brought me to Disney Gay Days and, on the last night of my visit, a large group gathered for a potluck at which I spoke. It was there that […]
Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian ministry, wants high school and college-aged students to join them in their “truth telling” sacred bullying-in-Jesus-Name of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community during Day of Dialogue. Even when words are wrapped in heart-themed paper and tied with a “Jesus-loves-you” ribbon, if there is something rotten at […]
Canyonwalker Connections is joining with GLAAD in support of Spirit Day on October 19th. To symbolize solidarity with LGBT youth in a plea to raise awareness of the bullying that goes on in the lives of LGBT youth, people are asked to wear purple. Anti-bullying measures begins in our own heads, hearts, mouths and typing […]
I have a hair-trigger sensitivity for the protection of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (glbt) youth. Even if an action is wrapped in heart-themed paper and tied with a Jesus-loves-you ribbon, when there is something rotten inside, I can smell it. There is something very rotten at the core of the Day of Dialogue event […]
For the past five years, I have conducted a workshop or gathering time for parents , friends and allies of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people at the Gay Christian Network Conference. Not only has the group size increased, but the stage of acceptance of the group has progressed radically. In 2007, the parents in […]
In 2001, if you had asked me, “Kathy, can you be gay and Christian?” I would have hedged a bit and fallen on the side of “No”. I did not have any close relationships with gay people nor had I ever studied the issue in the Bible. I did not even know one gay Christian, […]
. “Hey, ‘str8apology lady’, tell ‘em. Tell her what you told me. Tell her Jesus loves her too.” So, I did, over and over throughout the day at Pride Charlotte on August 27th. I have gone to pride events for years and the extremes seen in Charlotte that day tell the greater story of […]
On July 9, 2011, The Evangelical Network (TEN) held a press conference at its annual conference in Austin, TX to: call on Evangelicals to stand up for marginalized, oppressed and vulnerable youth, and glbt youth in particular bring attention to the current lack of coordinated efforts in the prevention of bullying in schools give voice […]
Focus on the Family: Stop Lying About Gays FOTF manipulates information, creates homophobia, uses fear and misinformation against homosexuals and gay youth.
[A fore note: I decided to headline this post partially with the exact title of this highly offensive tract. I want to hit the top of the search engines and maybe get some readers that are looking to “Medical Consequences of What Homosexuals Do” as an authoritative piece. I know it is offensive, but busting […]
To be known and still be loved. To be seen and still be accepted. Tough concept to grasp on either side of the equation. I specifically remember a very late night over thirty years ago when I was secreted away in the Engineering Building at Rutgers University. I was on a constant run from me. […]
How is the Christian church responding the the GLBT community in their quest for equality? Looking back at in our involvement in abolition, the suffrage movement and the Civil Right Act of 1964, have we learned lessons that we can now apply to gay/trans people as they struggle for equality?
The Ten Lies about the GLBT Community Told by Conservative Hate Groups | A Straight Christian Perspective
The Family Research Council was placed on the Southern Poverty Law Center list of Hate Groups. Is it because they are conservatives and the GBLT debate does not like what they say, or are they really hateful and tellers of lies that hurt people?
Annual Gay Christian Network Conference in Denver, CO, 2011 and in Orlando, FL Jan. 2012. All are welcome. The church is not complete without the GLBT children of God. Join with hundreds of believers and their advocates for worship, services, workshops, resources and incredible fellowship time.
