A Message to Christians and the LGBT Community

Yesterday’s 5–4 U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage will undoubtedly go down as one of the most momentous moments in U.S. history — on par with women’s right to vote, abolishing Jim Crow laws, and Roe vs. Wade. Not since the civil rights movement has there been a topic so divisive in our country.

To Christians

There’s no time better than now to exercise wisdom and love when dealing with this issue. If you claim that you truly care for the “salvation” of the LGBT people in your sphere of influence, evaluate the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of your words and actions. Why would anyone be open to the words of the gospel if they’re coming out of the mouth of a person saying stupid sh** like “God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.”

To the LGBT Community

Just because someone disagrees with you on something, that does not mean they hate or even are prejudiced against you. It is absolutely possible to love someone, show them love, even celebrate their love, while at the same time holding to a belief that doesn’t necessarily agree with yours.

To Both of Y’all…

Christians — Jesus said the two most important commandments were to love God and love people. So do that. Are your words and actions towards those who disagree with you loving?
