Faith in the LGBT Community

Representatives from Judaism and the Baptist, Episcopal and Unitarian Universalist churches recently met at the University of Maryland to discuss how homosexuality has affected their personal lives, their own congregations and their faith. The panelists’ viewpoints were scattered across the spectrum, but I found this quote quite powerful:

“Jesus doesn’t say anything about orientation in the Gospels. Instead he teaches love and compassion. If anything, the only thing he speaks out against is divorce, and you don’t see them trying to outlaw divorce. What we’re dealing with are anthropological issues about human dignity and human worth.” – Reverend Peter Antoci of the Episcopal-Anglican Campus Ministry
