Resources to Share and Help Educate for Support of Marriage Equality & Christian Same-Sex Marriage

same-sex Christian marriage

Canyonwalker Connections’ strong emphasis is on education and respectful engagement between the conservative church and the LGBT community, with particular support for the full inclusion of LGBT Christians in all faith communities.

While marriage equality is a dream come true for many same-sex couples, their friends and families, to many conservative Christians, this may be a frightening or confusing time. They may feel that they need to stand firm to “protect” God and His Word.

To help LGBT Christians, their allies, and LGBT people in general engage with friends and family who are less delightedStreet Preacher Calling for my Repentance at Pride Charlotte 2011 with equal federal rights in marriage, I’ve created a series of easily sharable resources based on the most common objections that I’ve heard while engaging. After reading or listening, you may be better able to engage in civil and productive exchanges.

The discourse could become ugly, angry and hurtful on both sides.

I hope these posts and the audios bring civility, knowledge, and wisdom into the public and religious arenas as the United States moves forward in including LGBT people in the most sacred of relationships — marriage.

In the words of Justice Anthony Kennedy, June 26, 2015:

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.

As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death.

It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves.

Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
