In Times Like This.
In times like this.
Where people are bringing out the evilest of symbols, there is no statement. Only silence.
Where sexual assault and harassment are high, there is no statement. Only silence.
Where the President many of you supported and asked people to support belittles anyone that is not a rich white male, there is no statement. Only silence.
However, where many Christians have recognized the need to change and adapt. And be welcoming of the LGBT, you claim this.
You write this as if you are the only people with any knowledge of Scripture. You claim there is confusion on "sexuality and transgenderism" . Yet it seems you are confused. Or woefully ignorant. You forget that Scripture has more to say on topics like poverty, fairness, and loving your neighbour.
You write this as if you are leaders. Yet, day after day, people see your lack of leadership where it is vitally needed.
In times where your voice is actually needed, poverty, fairness, loving your neighbour, standing for the marginalized there is no statement. Only silence.
Yet you make this statement on sexuality.
They say 80% of communication is non-verbal. It's what you don't say more than what you say.
Today we heard your silence.
Shame on you.
