Conversations with Kimeron

Kimeron sent me a detailed account of how he grew up and understood about his sexuality. You can read it here. It is fairly long (six pages), but after reading it I was able to put myself at least somewhat in his shoes. We are far quicker to judge something or someone that we don’t understand, so in that line of thinking I’d encourage you to spend a few moments reading through his perspective.

One thing that is evident to me in this discussion is that when the Church talks about homosexuality as a sin, it is referring to a behavior. When gay people talk about homosexuality, they are referring to an identity. I think this distinction is important to remember, especially when Christians seem surprised by how judged and isolated gay people often feel from them.

What is your reaction to reading Kimeron’s story?
