religioncover_6

I was interviewed by The Claremont Journal of Religion concerning sexuality, gender, LGBT, etcetera. I found it very engaging, and I hope it gives you, my readers, a better idea of where I stand on these issues.Here's an excerpt: "This  is  the  problem:  no  matter  how  open,  accepting  and  caring  religious  organizations  are  towards  marginalized  groups,  if  these  feelings  don't  translate  into  policy  then  it's  empty  speech.  It  means  absolutely  nothing.  As  some  young … [Read more...]
