Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

GNC was a website a Christian friend found for me after my daughter came out to me. When I told my daughter about it, all she could say was, "Christian and Gay are two words I never would have put together". All she had read on the internet was very hateful words which made her think that she could no longer belong to the family of God, and that her father and I would no longer love her once we found out she was gay. (because we are Christian) We went to their convention and found some healing and a feeling of belonging that has been missing for some time. There is still so much hurt though, and so much reconciling to be done. I really hope you consider this non-profit worthy of attention and support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Having the courage to be an "out of the closet" supporter of the GLBT community. Without the support of other Christians (who I don't think I would have know are out there without this website) I think I would have stayed hidden.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have them consider more thoughtfully my faith beliefs, which are Christian Universalism. (the belief that through Jesus, all souls will eventually be reconciled to God)
