United Church Leader Writes an Open Letter to the LGBTQ Community

TORONTO, May 12, 2014 /CNW/ - In an open letter issued today by The United Church of Canada, the church's Moderator, the Right Rev. Gary Paterson, delivers a message he hopes will be heard by the LGBTQ community.

The letter, which was issued in advance of the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia on May 17, emphasizes "that not all Christians think the same way; that the hatred, condemnation, and judgment inflicted upon LGBTQ people by some within the Christian church is wrong and does not reflect the sum total of all Christian understanding of gender identity and sexual orientation."
