Anti-LGBT ‘Nashville Statement’ meets a more loving ‘Chicago Statement’ – Chicago Tribune

I have learned that God does not approve of me.

A group of more than 150 evangelical leaders from across the country released a lengthy statement Tuesday declaring, among other things, this: “WE AFFIRM that it is sinful to approve of homosexual immorality or transgenderism and that such approval constitutes an essential departure from Christian faithfulness and witness.”

That’s a fancy way of saying that if you think lesbian, gay and transgender people are just fine, you’re a sinner.

So I’m a sinner. And if you read the full statement — referred to as the Nashville Statement, as that’s where the evangelical group was meeting — you’ll find that I get off easy compared to the LGBT community at large. They are sweepingly condemned.
