Should LGBTQ People Interact with Those Who Oppose Their Equality?

July 9, 2015

This week we’re featuring posts from participants in the 2015 Wild Goose Festival, going on now in Hot Springs, North Carolina.

Kimberly Knight writes the Coming Out Christian blog on Patheos.

“A person who would believe I must argue on behalf of my own right to exist exactly as God created me simply is not a friend whether or not we are ‘friends’ on Facebook. People do not get to have a difference of opinion about my civil rights and humanity. My sacred worth is not up for a vote and I do not have to include as ‘friends’ (especially strangers on FB) those who ‘think differently’ about my personhood. If you want to welcome those who abuse you to your table, feel free, but I do not have to nor will I.”

Read “Friends do not ‘think differently’ about my humanity or ‘disagree’ about my sacred worth.”

Their work draws attention to: the ongoing trauma experienced by women and LGBTQIA people in this “Christian” society; Christ/Sophia’s desire that each of us move deeper into our own practice of non-violence; and the desperate need to move away from an androcentric conception of God.
