Many LGBT people view themselves as second class citizens because of their internalizing often hateful "religious" rhetoric to which they have been exposed, and also because that is the way they are treated. Therefore, all too many LGBT people are rather quick to embrace rather meaningless political rhetoric and settle for what crumbs of incrementalism are doled out to them by politicians.
It's high time that all of us decide that no one is to settle for anything other than full and equal civil rights because God creates LGBT people just as God creates Straight people! And God doesn't make any mistakes!
This two part video is instructive in not only the message that is conveyed by Rev. Perry, but by your seeing a truly courageous man of God speak from his heart.
