Pride was last weekend and social media was full of rainbow coloured profile pics. It really caught the imagination. I saw posts from right across the political spectrum. Some full of love, some deeply frustrating.
I feel the difference. To be honest I find it hard to deal with.
I find it hard that Christians and the church are so closed off to the gay community. I find it hard that same-sex marriage isn’t allowed in a widely secular society.
I find it hard that the church is being leveraged to redefine Christian marriage against its will.
Each strand of that rainbow shows the uniqueness of people, the whole spectrum showing the contrast between us all. I’m not sure that I have the answers to how we can make things better, but the rainbow sounds like a pretty good place to start.
