We have been told by Christians that our opinion on LGBTQ+ people is invalid—that our opinion is invalid because we have two children who are part of that community, and of course, we would just change our opinion to justify them.
Let me tell you something. Since our two kids came out, we have pondered, prayed, pressed for answers. We have sought, studied, searched for God. We listened and asked and listened some more. And through it all we heard that still small voice, expressing truth and love and transcendent peace.
Don’t you dare tell me that our opinion is invalid and doesn’t matter.
We are the ones whose opinion DOES matter, because we have something very important at stake—two very important somethings.
