GLAAD’s Director of Religion, Faith & Values, Ross Murray, published an essay in CNN’s Belief Blog about Christians’ increasing acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. The essay, entitled “My Take: Why Christians are embracing their LGBT neighbors,” demonstrates the changes in both hearts and minds, as well as denominational policies, the increasing welcome, acceptance, and advocacy for and with LGBT people.
