Speaking the truth in love
July 12th, 2016
By Jay Strickwerda


Re “Bishops call on Filipinos not to bully, harass gay community,” June 23:


Yes, sincere deep compassion for the Orlando shooting victims and their families is unquestionably the humane and Christian response. But I wonder if the bishops were actually being quoted when phrases like “sexual orientation” and “sexual preferences” were used in the article?


I hope not – and am guessing those were the unwary reporter’s words – as such language buys into the extremely murky ideology of random gender identity, which is a Pandora’s box and a tragedy itself.


God help us all to “speak the truth in love.”
