    My church isn't fundy--couldn't handle that. It's a very nice, welcoming place. . Even so, it won't let gay or lesbian folks teach Sunday school.

    I stay with the church because I made a commitment to it. But before I joined, I told the pastor that I would never accept that tenet, and asked if it would be better that I didn't join.

    He said, no, join--lots of other folks here feel the same way. He is tolerant of others' beliefs, even their political beliefs.

    It's not a perfect community, but none of us are perfect, and God meets us where we are. We never know when God might change us, or how.

        True story.

        Before we found our current church, we were ready to join another one. To join the class, you had to take a class.

        When the director started talking about "the homosexual agenda," and certain groups who were going to hell, I quietly freaked out in my seat. My husband, too. We never went back.
