House of Deputies President Gay Jennings just posted a BRILLIANT (and super timely) piece on Religion News Service (RNS) addressing the global persecution of LGBT people … including this quote about the dire situation in Uganda and Nigeria:
"Western Christians cannot ignore the homophobia of these church officials or the peril in which they place Ugandan and Nigerian LGBT people. The legacy of colonial-era Christian missionaries and infusions of cash from modern-day American conservatives have helped to create it."
Amen, Amen, AMEN!
Read the rest here ... and give thanks for national church leaders willing to step up and speak out!
