Pastors and Priests: LGBTQ People Don’t Destroy Civilization

The end of the world as we know it

Transgender people and same-sex attracted people are not destroying the world

I’m not writing to LGBTQ people today. I’m writing to spiritual leaders.

I’ve already written about how LGBTQ people are suffering

“Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together — mass hysteria!”

Religious teachings about social harm inflame homophobic attitudes and lead to intolerance and bullying

Western Civilization is at stake! (Right?)

It’s past time for Christian leaders to examine their faith in the light of increased human knowledge and to inform their faith in the light of love, respect, and tolerance for human biological diversity.

Quite the opposite is true

That’s not how nature works

Same-sex attraction is biological

Empathy, except theoretically, seems to be entirely lacking

Including LGBTQ people equally in civil institutions does not destabilize society

LGBTQ couples raise vast numbers of needy children

Children raised by gay couples grow up healthy

Equality is not summoning the end of the world

Dogs and cats are not about to start living together in sin

A personal challenge
