Yes I'm on tumblr in church but this is important okay
My preacher just brought up the whole thing with the pizza place not serving the gay couple or whatever it is and the word “Christphobia” popped up on the screen with him saying that Christans are being hated for their beliefs and I was so sure this would be a sermon full of homophobic shit.
But I was surprised when he said:
“Your beliefs never give you the right to discriminate and mistreat and look down on anyone. The world wants us to apologize for what we believe, but that’s not what we need to do. We should not apologize for what we believe in, we should apologize for the people who use their beliefs to abuse other people.”
That’s the first time I’ve only heard a preacher tell his church family that we need to treat the LGBT community with the same type of love we would to any of our other brothers or sisters.
Idk, this just feels like something that’s really important.
