Homosexuality: Thoughts By a Straight, Christian Woman


We have been taught that homosexuality is a sin and as Christians we must try our best to amend and change our sinful ways. This subject is now being discussed among the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
3 ordained ministers, written about in the “Lutheran Standard”, do not have a church, yet, because they will not say or promise not ever to marry (their own gender) in the future. The church knows there are ordained homosexual ministers in the church who stay closeted and are allowed to pastor a parish under this condition. Many feel too much time is being spent on this sexual subject. The church should be directing its energy to preaching, teaching and mission work. It is slow work trying to write a statement of equal spiritual inclusivity, but the modern church must do this. It may take 2-5 years before we get everything solved. Right now, the ELCA is afraid to make too hasty a statement because they fear this could split the church wide apart.
Author: 71 year young, straight, Christian mother – written November, 1989
Mom, been way more than 5 years with little progress and when you died (2001) I could see the worry you had for me, your Christian lesbian daughter. I also knew, though you loved your Church, you were disappointed, to put it mildly. I carry on your dream and legacy for spiritual equality; for celebration of gay LOVE.
