In 2022, April 10-16 is Holy Week for Christians across the globe. Which makes it the perfect time for allies, who also identify as people of faith, to affirm LGBTQ+ Christians and their families. This process is easy for some, but for many, it remains challenging when faith leaders don't demonstrate the inclusion and support that so many LGBTQ+ people need and deserve. This episode of Something To Talk About Live, we will be discussing Father James Martin, S.J.’s article in America Magazine: The Jesuit Review of Faith & Culture, “Can You Really Hate the Sin and Love the Sinner?” with Father Martin, who authored the article.
Something to Talk About Live is a series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about LGBTQ+ issues. Each week we offer an article on LGBTQ+ topics and suggest a few questions you can use to lead a discussion with your ERG, community group, or PFLAG chapter.
We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, April 14. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!
