Religion and the Queer

I'm further feeding my obsession with religion and homosexuality.

Religion and LGBT Americans

This is the beginning of the post:

We must bring faith discussions back to their roots of seeking understanding. A vocal minority is falsely promoting the notion that religious people stand in opposition to equal rights. Our job is to promote the truth that a majority of people of faith believes strongly in fairness and justice."
— Harry Knox, director of HRC Religion and Faith Program

Religion has been a source of both solace and suffering for many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. For while most LGBT Americans have been raised in an organized religion — and many continue to cherish their faith community — too many have been forced to leave those communities behind because of condemnation of lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

This post is about religions and their stances on LGBT folk. Check it out!
