Using the bible to justify discrimination

Using the bible to justify discrimination

Yesterday the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on whether LGBTQ Americans can be fired for no other reason than their sexual orientation or gender identity. This baffles me and frightens me. Many people claim their religious freedom is at stake. Their freedom to...

Deciding LGBTQ rights

Deciding LGBTQ rights

Fifteen years ago I was writing my blogs about marriage equality and following the states who were voting to legalize it and states voting to outlaw it. I had a passion for marriage equality. I have one gay son and one straight son. One was able to marry and one was...

Forgiveness for myself and others

Forgiveness for myself and others

A very wise man said to me recently that I had to be careful not to become intolerant of those who are intolerant toward LGBTQ people and LGBTQ rights. When I become intolerant of them then I become like them. I’ve noticed since then that I’m less upset and angry at...

Your child has just come out to you as LGBTQ. You live in a small town or in a rural setting. You want and need support but where do you go when there is no support locally? When my son came out in 1989 there wasn’t the internet and social media. I didn’t know where...
