JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE CHRISTIAN DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T SUPPORT LGBT

Today the Supreme Court finally declared same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.

As a Christian woman, people are often surprised to hear that I fully support LGBT rights. However, God wants us to love our brother and our neighbor, just as Christ has loved us. Just because the desires of this community are not aligned with the traditions of the Bible does not mean that they should not be legally free to love one another and that we should not show them the consideration, support, and respect that they deserve.

People believe that this will ruin the sanctity of marriage, but Kim Kardashian's 72 day marriage did not hurt the sanctity of your marriage...did it?

Here's the way I see it....The Bible says in Leviticus that men shall not lie with men. However, the Bible also says that we should honor our mother and father, and I can promise I have not followed that commandment flawlessly in my life. We are all sinners, we can not pin sin versus sin, because only God can be the judge. What we can do is love everyone regardless of their race, gender, religious belief, and sexual affiliation.
