Excellent resource, Sophie.

When approaching traditions, we must keep what is good & drop what is no longer applicable in our human evolution. How do we decide ? When we are treating others with love, acceptance & compassion, we are in sync with what is best in our religion. There is no need to take what is rich symbolically in the great religious traditions & limit it to the narrow confines of what is often inappropriate literal interpretation. I see the GLBT dialogues with established religions positive in this regard.

noted and thanks, but i really hate to admit my ignorance, i had to look up the acronym. i had no idea what it meant and now that i know, i just want to say the our world has multiple serious problems, as in multiple systems failures. our serious problems need serious people to fix them. quite honestly, i'd rather we focus all of our attention on our serious problems and let people live their own lives. what two consenting adults do in private is not my business. their choices are their choices and if they are happy, i'm happy. however i am glad that many are finally finding acceptance in our religious houses as they should be loving and accepting.

Most of the sites listed address GLBT people and faiths that reject them. It is sad that patriarchal faiths are threatened by them. Most preChristian religions valued GLBT participants. In my religion those women who were attracted to other women were considered to be touched by and sacred to the God. Those men who were attracted to other men were considered touched by and sacred to the Goddess. It's time that all faiths were more accepting of all people who don't actively pursue evil.

According to the Bible: All that exists is God's will. If God willed it, he cannot punish it, because if He did He would be an unjust God. If God is Love, He cannot hate. Gays are born gay, therefore God willed it. Being gay is not a sin. Hate, injustice, murder, jealousy and greed is what God condemns. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Be in peace and love each other, that's the meaning.

Honesty, honour, compassion, caring, helping = my philosphy, my religion. Everything else falls into place.

Honesty, honour, compassion, caring, helping = my philosophy, my religion. Everything else falls into place.
