Top 5 reasons Jesus Followers Should Celebrate Pride Month
Editor’s Note: President Nancy Claire Pittman offers this list for celebrating Pride Month.
Top 5 reasons cis-gendered, heterosexual followers of Jesus should celebrate Pride Month with queer siblings and colleagues (written by one cis-gendered heterosexual follower of Jesus to others) :
- Jesus, echoing Jewish teaching, says “love your neighbor.”
- Celebrating God’s love for all and welcoming everyone to the table is a very Jesus thing to do.
- Affirming that each person is made in the image of God, just as they are, is a very Jesus thing to accept.
- Calling people to stop harassing salesclerks and managers of stores that support the queer community is a way to hunger and thirst for righteousness.
- You may actually love and accept the people you think you hate and reject. Jesus already does.
