Christians Show LGBT People that Love is Louder than Hate!

July 10, 2014

Michael Kimpan discusses his second experience participating in The Marin Foundation’s I’m Sorry Campaign during Chicago’s Gay Pride Day celebration this year.

Anti-LGBT protesters show up at events like Pride to bully and shame participants by displaying signs denigrating LGBT people, and shouting hateful words through bullhorns. I’m Sorry Campaign participants counter these violent actions by standing in front of protesters and displaying signs that say, “We’re here to apologize for the ways that we as Christians have harmed the LGBT community.”

Kimpan writes:

“Time and time again I watched as those who were being told they weren’t loved by God, that they were going to hell – and worse – responded with these words :

‘even though you hate us, we love you!’

‘we love you anyway!’

‘God loves you even if you don’t know him (or her)!’
