My good friend, Don Charles, on his excellent blog, "Christ, The Gay Martyr,", has a new two-part post entitled, "Credo," that must be widely distributed and read by every Gay person and by every professing Christian! As is typical of his writings, it is provocative and absolutely brilliant!
Here is an excerpt from his two part post:
"I believe that organized religion owes LGBT folk around the world an official apology. The Pope and other religious leaders should apologize for all the suffering, savagery and discrimination we've had to endure as a direct result of their hatemongering theology; and after they do it, every one of them should fall down prostrate before God and beg His pardon for the capital sin of distorting His Holy Word. Do you think it's disrespectful for me to suggest such a thing? Then you don't understand the meaning of disrespect! Gay people understand its meaning. I understand. Whenever I think about the millions of families that have been torn apart; the millions of victims who've been brutalized and murdered; the scores of innocents who've been jailed and executed; the dozens of livelihoods and reputations that have been destroyed, and especially the countless number of human spirits that have been traumatized and broken, I feel the blood begin to boil within my veins. Reparations are definitely in order here! I would join a class action lawsuit in a heartbeat; wouldn't you?"
I strongly urge you to read his two-part post, "Credo."
