Welcome Jonathan! Glad to have you here!
Mel is a wonderful man. Many of us here could say that we are very greatful to he and his partner Gary for creating this place.
There are some interested discussions regarding the church and GLBT issues; the best part is, if you can't get your questions answered by reading, you're more then welcome to start a new thread/discussion.
I how you stick around, we'd love to hear more from you!
