In the podcast I refer to the wrong show notes webpage. Please go to episode25 webpage. 

Without talking about theology, we must bridge the gap and learn to talk to each other about what is going on inside our religious communities.

Gay and Religious Problems
  • LGBT people held their religious beliefs before identity as LGBT
  • Creating major conflict within one's self about who they are. Feelings so worthless, shame, guilt along with blaming God come on every LGBT journey into reconciling their sexual identity with their beliefs.
  • Some religious communities are not accepting of what they call the "lifestyle choices."
  • Research has shown that 40% of homeless youth are LGBT. One of the major reason for this is because the youth do not feel accepted at home due to religious beliefs.
