A Letter To Church Leaders Regarding LGBTQ Youth

"If you're using the Bible to proof-text yourself into feeling justified for discriminating against someone else—you're probably doing religion and the Bible wrong—and you're definitely doing Love wrong."

A Letter To Church Leaders Regarding LGBTQ Youth Dear Church Leaders, Over the past two decades I’ve been a pastor to students.

Conservatives are out to stop cancel culture. They should look in the mirror. 04/11/2021

Conservatives are out to stop cancel culture. They should look in the mirror.

"Conservatives have been canceling people they don’t like for a long time. Just ask former NFL player Colin Kaepernick. He became the target of unending attacks for kneeling at games during the national anthem to protest police violence against Black people.

All conservatives are doing is adapting cancel culture and branding it with a different name: religious freedom. The relentless assault on LGBTQ rights is an attempt to cancel the progress made to date."

Jesus did not die for the sins of this world. Jesus died because of the sins of this world. He was put to death as a state criminal by the Roman Empire. Jesus’ assertion that God came before Caesar was a threat. The #GoodFriday question is whether we stand with God or Empire.

Open Letter to A Transgender Young Person

"I only hope these words can be a companion in the days when the fear feels like it will overwhelm you, when the sadness threatens to swallow you up, when the monsters are prevalent and close, when there seems to be no safe space to simply rest in your truth, when you begin to believe that no one around you sees or loves or believes in you.
I see you.
I love you.
I believe in you.
So many people do."

"Trans Day of Visibility focuses on trans people but is not exclusive to the trans community. Allies of the trans community can also take part by reaching out to a trans friend and sending their support. Those who live in a state that is trying to enact anti-trans legislation can write to their state legislator to oppose those bills. Within their social circles, allies can be visible and vocal supporters of trans people."

Father Nathan Monk

I guess I’m super confused. One of the main reasons we wanted 45 out was because of kids in cages, right? Because I just shared a meme of Lil Nas X saying we need to be still talking about the issue and suddenly it’s, “what are we supposed to do with all these people crossing the border!” and “oh yeah, what’s your solution?!”

I voted for Biden. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to be silent about important issues just because he’s President. Yes, I’m aware he’s working to address the problem of detention centers, but let’s not be like the Right and pretend like he can do no wrong.

Believe me, I will rejoice the day that no one is sitting in a detention center. I will praise Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for all the work they will do to address it. But right now, I’m standing in solidarity with all of those who are fighting on the front lines of this issue, and those who are still physically suffering, by continuing to elevate this very real problem.

I spoke out against It under Obama, Trump, and now Biden. You can call it divisive, I call it being consistent.

You can also donate time, money and resources to services working for trans people. COVID-19 has led to more and more trans people being trapped at home, often with transphobic or unsupportive families."

"When it comes to the Equality Act, the loudest Christians are often portrayed as the only Christians...In fact, the Equality Act has significant support from mainstream Protestant denominations—aka Christians. Among them are the U.S. Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. All told, more than 100 faith groups have endorsed the bill."
