‘Gay or Christian?’ Church distributes amazing LGBT-affirming pamphlet at Pride

A Christian group has distributed an awesome LGBT-affirming pamphlet at Pride.

Tumblr user Hannah shared the book she was handed during a pPide parade in Louisville, Kentucky.

She wrote: “Out of all the things I’ve received at pride parades, as a Christian, this one is my favourite.”

The pamphlet appeals to people who are attempting to reconcile their faith and their sexuality by busting common myths.

It says: “Do you feel abandoned or hated by God because you are gay? The Lord is merciful; God will not abandon or destroy you.”

“Are you tired of hearing that AIDS is sent by God to destroy the LGBTQ people? God loves us – and sent Jesus. Jesus came to earth to heal us, not condemn us.

“Have you been banned from your church or kicked out for being LGBTQ? Some churches are misguided and don’t teach God’s true message of love.

“Did God really destory Sodom and Gomorrah because of homosexuality? God destroyed the cities because the people were corrupt, rude and inhospitable, not for being gay.”

It was apparently distributed by a church group called the ‘Open Door Community Fellowship’ in Louisville.

The pamphlet ends with a giant Pride flag – serving as a nice counterpoint to the other kind of Christian literature handed out at Prides.

Anti-gay Christian activists recently infiltrated Pride Toronto to hand out ‘condom’ packets with a nasty surprise.

The group, led by anti-gay activist Bill Whatcott, were incredibly allowed access to march in the parade after paying a $100 fee to register the ‘Gay Zombies Cannabis Consumers Association’.

They dressed up as zombies and handed out ‘condom’ packets to the crowd.

However, the packets didn’t actually contain condoms. Click here to read more
