The original caption to this photo reads:
“A Christian group shows up to a Chicago Gay Pride parade holding apologetic signs including ‘I’m sorry for how the church treated you.‘”
In many ways the photo speaks for itself… but I’ll just add one thing.
Thank you to everyone who has the courage to look at … and SEE … what they don’t understand.
Thank you to everyone who chooses Love over everything.
Thank you to everyone who believes God can exist within and around and through anyone… no matter their race, gender, sexual identity, sexual orientation, skills, income level, education, etc. etc.
Thank you to everyone who extends compassion and empathy to those who are marginalized in any way.
And thank you to those who see this photo and can’t help but grin.
Wishing you all love, real hugs, and bright tightie whities.
