Responding to the last post, a friend emailed:
What I like about these protesters is not such much their lack of homophobia, or their active support of their gay relatives and friends, but it’s their real understanding that Jesus loved us all and supported us all. Whenever something awful is going on in the world, Stephen Gerth reminds us that God loves us and we love God. These people get that — and from people like that, eventually we will lose bigotry.
Stephen Gerth is rector of Saint Mary’s Times Square.
