The Church and Transgender Suicide Rates

September 28, 2015

“Instead of asking parents of transgender children to leave the Church, it’s time for the Church to support those parents so they are able to support their children better. Instead of reacting with fear toward the transgender community, it’s time to start acting with love. It’s time for the Church to accept the role they have played in transgender suicide and begin to look for ways to breathe life into the trans community.”

Read “Why The Church Needs to Look Deeper at Transgender Suicide” on the Knitting Soul blog.  And while you’re there, take a look around.  There are many great posts to read.
