I spent the evening celebrating the resurrection of Jesus the Christ with The Babtist Women. I wish we as a church would stop perpetuating the shame and damnation of homosexuality.
I want to point out that my sweater says “WTFWJD”. I would also say that Jesus would answer, “love your neighbor as I have loved you.” We need more love and less hate.
I am reminded of my favorite Merton quote, “The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.“
