Jesus loves gays too
Letter to the Editor,
Lewiston Morning Tribune, January, 2007
I bet he’d say to those who hate themselves for being gay, "My
father made you. He knows you, and he loves you." And I bet if they could see
the love in his eyes, they’d believe him and be free.
I bet that instead of telling us the parable of the good
Samaritan, he’d tell us the parable of the good gay person. And the Pharisees of
today would be forced to say the gay person had been a true neighbor — not
I bet that if a transgendered woman were dragged before him by
today’s Pharisees (someone like Dr. James Dobson and his Focus on the Family)
demanding Jesus condemn her, I bet he’d look her in the eyes and say, "I do not
condemn you." And she would cry great tears of joy, washing his feet with her
tears and drying them with her hair. I bet he’d say a few words to those
self-righteous folk like, "You strain at a gnat and choke on a camel."
And I bet that if we went to church, we would not find him
there. He would be found changing water into wine at a gay wedding.
