Hello, new member
Hello everyone, I have just registered and want to introduce myself.
My name is Catriona. I am 25, and live in Glasgow, Scotland. I am straight, married, no gay relations (one lesbian friend, that's all) but over some months I have been increasingly drawn to find out more about the LGBT community and the struggles it is having, with the Church in particular. Through websites like Whosoever (particulary Whosoever, in fact! It has become one of my favourite sites) I have been very moved and distressed by people's accounts of rejection and hatred at the hands of society as a whole, but particulary at the hands of the church. I feel a very strong sense of injustice that people who speak in the name of Jesus would offer his acceptance and love to everyone except gays and lesbians, and while I am still a bit confused about some of the technical biblical and legal arguments re: marriage etc., I feel strongly that this is an issue of justice, and of the misrepresentation of God's love, and I want to add my voice to the argument.
So I have joined the Soulforce forums in order to find out more and to perhaps start getting involved in changing things.
