A family lunch tainted by bigotry: a guest post by Tonya Caputo


I saw a Facebook post by a mom the other day that just broke my heart and really pissed me off. I know we all see those maddening posts every day but this one stuck with me in such a way that I immediately reached out to the mom who wrote the post and invited her to share [Read More...]

I am so grateful to Kimberly for offering a chance to guest blog here.  As I am sure many of you do, I admire Kimberly’s writing so much — she brings the real struggle that we all experience to life in her posts — giving me energy to face my own struggles.  I work for [Read More...]

An open letter to Roy Moore: my rights unalienable


Dear Roy, I am grateful for the lawmakers in states around this beautiful and broken country who have the compassion and courage to lift up legislation that recognizes my LGBT sisters and brothers as full citizens in the land we share. I am prayerful that more states, like my own sweet Georgia will soon see the light [Read More...]

A Christian woman worthy of marriage?


So I’ve generally ignored the kerfuffle around a theologically, psychologically and sociologically ignorant little post called “10 Women Christian Men Should Not Marry” by Dr. Kim. Recently there have been some really good responses that finally got to me. I feel all the feels about this sharp response by the witty Catholic blogger Calah Alexander. Then there is this one by the incomparable [Read More...]

Equal rights for LGBT people are not last rites for Christians


This week I’ve seen three news pieces and read scads of comments regurgitating the crazy notion that granting equal rights to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people denies rights to Christians. Rep. Vito Barbieri (R-Dalton Gardens) said he was worried extending protections to the LGBT community would strip “people of faith” of their rights. “It’s impossible to ignore [Read More...]

My homosexual agenda for 2015

Prayers from Matelot


On Sunday morning I woke at 6 a.m. to the distant but unmistakable sound of “Amazing Grace” off in the distance – in Matelot, Trinidad. I am traveling with a group of students who are on a Global Awareness trip to explore issues of gender and community development in Trinidad and Tobago. My job is to document the trip through [Read More...]

Why this Christian will never celebrate gay celibacy


There is a poorly thought-out article in the Washington Post from December 2014 that, well this: “Celibate Christian LGBT people are stepping out into the open for the same reason LGBT people in general are: Society has become so much more accepting, including in religious circles. But among conservative Christians, efforts toward more acceptance have collided [Read More...]

When Tim asked “How the fuck did we get here?”


So a couple of weeks ago (yes, well over a month ago, geeze) I invited y’all to submit questions that I would do my dead-level best to answer. First, your questions are far better my responses, thank goodness we’re all in this together. Second, there are no answers, only responses. I have this weird little [Read More...]
