Affirm that same-sex relationships are not inherently immoral

It's time to end the Christian condemnation of LGBTQ people, which is in direct contradiction to everything for which Jesus Christ stands. Being in a same-sex relationship is not, in and of itself, an offense against God. The fact that a person lives in a same-sex relationship is therefore no reason to exclude that person from full participation in all facets of Christian life, including getting married.

      It is hubris to assume God's views on anything that God has not specifically addressed. A committed, loving relationship of equal partners is not something specifically addressed in the Bible, be it for same-gendered or different gendered people.

      I am a devout Christian who is also a member of the LGBTQ community, and I am so tired of being told my existence is impossible and dishonest by the very people I am to call brothers and sisters. I am tired of being judged by my sexual orientation and not by the "good fruit" my life produces.

      For too long, too many of my brothers and sisters have held a boot to the necks of too many of my other brothers and sisters. Our future as not only a country, not only a religious discipline, but as a species in the Universe depends on our ability to move past this madness.
