Re: “Strong, true Christians accept and embrace their gay brethren” (Viewpoint, 5-20).
The headline created by the editor on thoughts written by the Rev. Donald Heinz and signed on by nine Lutheran retired clergy was absolutely misleading. Our intent was to speak of toleration and acceptance of all of God’s people. The editor’s chosen headline certainly inferred the opposite of this.
It is important to say that “strong, true Christians” may have varied points of view as regards our sexuality. We are called upon to live without condemnation of each other. The Church of Jesus Christ must have an umbrella big enough to include all under the canopy of grace. I regret the headline chosen.
