Why Anti-Gay Bullying is a Theological Issue | Sexuality/Gender | Religion Dispatches

  1. Thanks you for bringing that article to my attention. It is a shame that the "moral" few perpetuate these horrors. I found this passage particularly moving:
    Catholic theologian M. Shawn Copeland offers profound words to any individuals and churches seeking to wash their hands of this issue. She states,

    “If my sister or brother is not at the table, we are not the flesh of Christ. If my sister’s mark of sexuality must be obscured, if my brother’s mark of race must be disguised, if my sister’s mark of culture must be repressed, then we are not the flesh of Christ. For, it is through and in Christ’s own flesh that the ‘other’ is my sister, is my brother; indeed, the ‘other’ is me…”

    Rather than picking scripture to suit our purpose we would be much better off embracing its intent. Christ preached love and tolerance.
