Having seen the Stop-Homophobia Tweets which ask why Christians should still be using the Bible to 'throw their LGBT children out of the home'...
... it has made us think again really hard at what the Bible and our faith is saying about LGBT. I'm not wishing to break apart any of the 'Bible Clobber' verses here, I just want to focus upon just one verse. It's really topical as we approach Easter. In John Chapter 13 Jesus tells his followers (for once not on Twitter) that "He has a new commandment, that they should love one another". What is this love? Can you really say 'I love them' but not like that person? I love that it does not have stipulations for gender, race, sexual orientation, sin or anything... just love. Then a friend kindly sent me this cartoon which encapsulates today, the transgender day of visibility, and Easter. I hope you'll see the message regardless of your beliefs.
