For Pride month a Christian author has published an episode of her podcast announcing that her daughter is a lesbian. This has right wing fundamentalists personified by the ineffable Ken Ham foaming at the mouth. Here’s Ham:
Such an announcement should break the heart of Christians. The admission that this young woman has embraced a sinful identity will only bring hurt, brokenness, and pain as she rebels against her Creator and his Word, but also distressing is that her mother—a professing believer—has decided this is something good, to be proud of, and to celebrate.[This parent] has abdicated her role as a Christian parent. Instead of training her child in the ways of the Lord, she is condoning her daughter doing whatever she wants with her sexuality, in direct conflict with what God’s Word …. She’s ultimately condoning sin. Certainly, [she]r needs to love her daughter, but condoning her sin is not love. Love also means you share the truth of God’s Word in pointing out sin, but do it with gentleness.
The long article goes on in this way; the words of the Bible are everything; the needs of a human being, expected to deny her innate sexuality are ignored. The young woman should live a life of misery pretending to be something she is not in the vain hope of everlasting life.
Now we know we have this life and it’s relatively short, but no one has ever had any evidence of an afterlife and experience goes to show that when people die they become dead and we bury or burn them.
Do watch the video in this link and cringe. (https://answersingenesis.org/culture/jen-hatmaker-celebrates-daughters-gay-identity-for-pride-month/)
I am strongly tempted to repeat the words of Hitch: Religion poisons everything.
How would you react if your child, sibling, cousin, friend came out as lesbian, gay, trans?
Is homosexuality a sin?
Last but certainly not least; why is a two millennia plus old text full of myths, lies, contradictions and thoroughly bad writing ever allowed to set rules for our society?
