Imagine growing up hearing the church tell you that being straight is unnatural. Or that giving birth to children is wrong. Maybe they say that being left handed is an abomination. Imagine a key piece of who you are and who you were made to be, which you have no control over, being feared and despised by your faith community. To top that off, they tell you God feels the same way. Heartbreaking, right? This is a sad reality for many LGBTQ+ christians. Fortunately, some are refusing to be separated from God’s love, ignoring the self-appointed gatekeepers who would tell them otherwise.
On today’s episode, we were grateful and honoured to speak with the wonderful Kevin Garcia. We discuss using right pronouns, the gay agenda (spoiler: it involves brunch), being genderqueer in the church, the connection between sex and spirituality, why we feel so much shame and believing in the love of God. What a gift Kevin is!
