Defiinately GLBT Christians need someone who is sympathetic to their sexual orientation without being soft and accepting.

I don’t think “if it feels good, do it” should be the primary advice for straight or GLBT Christians, but they should learn to enjoy sexuality as part of their loving relationships within the context of their faith. The hetrosexual Christians need to learn this also, but most are just secretly doing it and hoping they don’t get found out and ‘repremanded’.

We need to know we can be both but we need to know and respect the guidelines. Then we can be confident in who we are, and not need to pretend we’re something we are not.

Some will choose to ‘come out’ some will not, but there must be a support group to help them. The church doesn’t provide one. Similarly, we need to keep in contact with other GLBT Christians or we merely melt back into the background and our lives are not the testimony they should be.

Their needs are different because of the lack of the fellowship and support that mainstream Christians take for granted.

As in the underground Churches in places like China, the Christians are stronger in their faith because of the challenges they face. So can we be.

Above all, we need to not blame God for the shortcomings of the Church system. Doing so only harms us as Christians.

Go Anthony, we need more Pastoral GLBT Christians.
