A brilliant young Christian gay man whom I recently met posed a challenge: Since, as this comprehensive new report states, "LGBT youth continue to be disproportionately represented among homeless youth in our country, and their experiences of homelessness continue to be characterized by violence, discrimination, poor health, and unmet needs. Family rejection, harassment in schools, and the shortcomings of juvenile justice and child welfare continue to drive these elevated rates of homelessness" and "between 25 percent and 50 percent of LGBT youth have attempted suicide at least once," why are so many Christians expending their energy condemning and excluding LGBT people rather than volunteering at LGBT youth homeless shelters and offering them suicide prevention services?
