As a former Catholic who attended Catholic schools for much of my education I am particularly aware of the destructive nature of the Vatican’s aggressive homophobia.
That’s why I encourage Catholics who have been allowed and also chosen to stay with the church (including most of my family) to be active voices of dissent.
Thus I found this little video touching. This woman works as a lay minister caring for and housing discarded LGBTQ youth. Her open advocacy within the faith for these abused and rejected children is inspiring.
I find it unfathomable that any god worth worshiping would wish to tear families apart and throw children to the streets.
