CHRISTIAN supporters of LGBT inclusion in the Church have been quick to issue a direct and opposing response to a statement released by Conservative Evangelicals this week which affirmed their belief that approval of “homosexual immorality” is sinful. But LGBT campaigners responded by publishing a parallel statement, named Christians United, the following day. It imitates the structure and language of the Nashville statement, but contradicts its beliefs. The foreword reads: “A new day is dawning in the Church, and all Christians are being called to step out boldly and unapologetically in affirmation and celebration of our LGBT+ siblings as equal participants in the Kingdom of God.
