Fear and Shame In the Closet

Hurt, judgment, and pain,

That’s what the church means to me…

Rainbows in closets


Overwhelming scientific and medical knowledge exist today pointing to an inescapable conslusion. Sexual orientation is not a moral choice. It is something to which people awaken.

Bishop John Shelby Spong, The Sins of Scripture page 125

One thing the Christian religion has done successfully is categorizing, shaming, and excluding the LGBTQ community. Some denominations have come to their senses and have realized their misinterpretation of the Bible and have welcomed them with open arms. Some will say something stupid like, “Well, we hate the sin but love the sinner.” And then there are the fundamentalists who take the Bible literally and just hate the sin and the sinner. It’s a confusing religion and a complicated Bible.

I love traveling with my wife all over the world. I enjoy the study of nutrition and cooking plant-based meals. I consider myself a Christian agnostic when it comes to god and religion. Namaste, Vic
