← Locked Out: How the Church Responded to their Pastor’s Coming Out

I feel your outrage and pain. You've been betrayed beyond belief (probably a pun in there somewhere if you dig for it). People with whom you've felt a deep connection have turned their backs on you, not for what you've done, but for the thoughts you hold in your head.

Now is the true test for you. You can reflect their hatred by behaving similarly toward them, or you can show them what kind of person you are, and how a person of true character should behave. You can show yourself what kind of person you want to be.

If you behave with love in your heart. Continue to help at church functions. Continue to visit the sick and those in need. Do it without expectations, and without the hope of proving a point.

Be the person you would be proud to know.
