Perhaps, there has been no moment in the history of humankind when those belonging to the third sex have been so welcome. Certainly, because they have been so heavily misunderstood for so long.
One reason would be because they’re different, and people aren’t always affectionate to the different, especially when their particular kind of difference poses a threat not only to moral living, but possibly, to civilization’s very existence. At least, from the viewpoint of countless Bible-holding pastors who preach that homosexuals are freaks of nature, and that they caused Sodom, Gomorrah, and their surrounding cities to be wiped out from the face of the then known world.
Homosexuals, they say, are condemned to hell. Meaning, either God brought them into the world to be in hell in the end, or that they are children of the devil and therefore will suffer the same punishment as he inevitably will.
Turns out, these cruel claims are just that. Claims. And thus, in no way represent the true God of the Bible.
The good news is, there is good news for gays.
