  • It's late. I'd try to come up with something compassionate to say about the Rev. Lonnie Latham, but I'm exhausted. So I said nothing.
    I keep wondering what it must be like for this man, to be gay and trapped into condemning homosexuality by dogma when his heart tells him otherwise.

  • I feel compassion for anyone struggling to reconcile thier identity with their beliefs. But he is not trapped. He makes a choice to embrace homophobic doctrine. Which only leads him into poor choices that reinforce the negative stereotypes of homosexuals.
    How many of Pittsburgh's good Christian upstanding men are cruising Schenley Park and Liberty Avenue on Saturday night and then heading off to church Sunday morning?

  • The need to belong, to be loved and accepted is very strong in humans. Jesus is the truth, but to avoid losing belonging, love, and acceptance, some lie to themselves and others in His name. I'm not saying it's right; it's horribly wrong. But it's very much a trap.
