I share an article in the Washington Post, posted by a friend on Facebook. I am unable to assign this post a title. The article is so much more than gay rights. Too often religious organizations and societies discuss the “issues of gay rights” as abstract ideas, invoking varied responses based upon value systems, experiences, and so much more. What is too often lost in the discussion is its context, its contingencies, its demands, its offer of love and hope: real life.
I do not discuss the article, in part because it is a story that lives, and moreover, I want it to resonate with each reader without inhibiting influence of my naming it.
I had hoped that this blog would invite discussion and shared experiences, but that has been very limited. My love goes out to Pastor Schaefer, his wife, their four children and significant others.
