Same Sex Attraction (SSA)

June 27, 2016

“Struggling with SSA (same sex attraction)” has become the mantra of many “bible thumping” conservative Christians to manipulate gay people into guilt and self hatred so that they will stop being who they are: GAY! If this describes you, know that your struggling is NOT caused by God’s Word (the Bible), but by the people who abuse God’s Word and preach homosexuality to be a sin. Gay or straight, it is to whom we are attracted that we are led to a SOUL with whom we fall in love.

GAY PIONEERS

June 9, 2016

Among the better known LGBT allies of the last 10 years, most of whom are not old enough to have experienced what life was like for LGBT’s in the days of “old”, I humbly and with respect and admiration, stress what is so important to remember – without the gay pioneers we would not have come to the equality, inclusion and affirmation we see burgeoning.

     The “Daughter’s of Bilitis”: a group of unknown lesbians who wanted to meet in places other than gay bars. 1955

     Rev. Troy Perry – 1968:  Founder of the Metropolitan Community Church aka “the gay church”.

     Stonewall –1969:  When LGBT people said “We’re mad as Hell and we’re not going to take this abuse any longer!” 

     This is but a tiny sample of average people, unknown people, fighting for the right to be who they are.

     We need leaders, but some fail to see that average LGBT’s ARE leaders.  Yet, too many of our stories are being ignored.   

     Share the “spotlight” with those who have lived in a time when society and the CHURCH condemned us to Hell.  Share our stories of hiding and lying in order to keep a job or stay in a Church or in a false heterosexual marriage.  Share the stories of those who did not have the benefit of allies.  Share the stories of failure because of CHURCH CONDEMNATION!!  Share the stories of those same gender couples who have loved in a marital way and kept their faith in our Lord God & Jesus the Christ.

     We need each other!!  Sharing and working together, we will keep moving forward!

     By sharing OUR stories, the average “Jane’s and Joe’s,” you will encourage more LGBT’s to be open and active and will show the Church the truth of God’s Word – GAY LOVE IS NOT A SIN!!

     REMEMBER: without LGBT Pioneers “rocking the boat” our nation’s government would not have changed; our Churches would not be debating this issue and making changes. 

     You leaders need us because you can’t reach enough.  There are too few of you and many of us with untapped resources.
