Hello from Central, PA. My name is Janett, I'm a 28 year old straight 'born again' Christian. I joined this forum because I think I've been fooled into believing that - as a Christian - I must pick and choose who is worthy of love and who isn't.
Anyways, I really like the topics on the forum and really appreciate the open discussion. Thanks for letting me hang out :)

Greetings, Janett. Welcome to Soulforce. There are lots of heterosexuals in Soulforce. Some of our most vocal supporters are heterosexual. Rev. Jimmy Creech (http://www.soulforce.org/article/48) and Rev. Stephen Van Kuiken (http://www.soulforce.org/article/28) even lost their jobs as pastors because they would not say no to the inclusion of same-gender couples in their churches.
One of the conversations I best remember was when we were at Washington D.C. demonstrating outside the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. When we took a lunch break, one of the gay men at our table asked Marylee Fithian why she was involved in Soulforce and the gay-rights movement. She's heterosexual and did not have any gay relatives that she knew of. She gave her answer straight-up: "Because I'm a minister."
