"Ties that bind" - how the church hurts gay people

Christine Bakke posted notice of this tv show, In the Life. As I watched I cried for the gay friends that I've made in the past couple of years. Tears for the hurt from the fundamentalist churches, loss for the ones who have died at their own hands. No, I have not personally known anyone who has committed suicide, but I know someone who wanted to. That is no longer true, and I'm extremely thankful.

I told Christine that I will continue to do all I can, hoping to be a voice of hope for gay people and their straight spouses, for family members of GLBT people, and for the friends who are trying to listen.
