I think that when *we* apologize…

Dear United Church,

I think that when we apologize, we need very much to go beyond saying we are sorry for overt acts of exclusion, for equating being LGBTQ2+ as sin or wrong or not in God’s plan. We need also to say we are sorry for saying we love people despite them being LGBTQ2+, for pretending LGBTQ2+-ness isn’t there or important, for side-stepping discussion of sexuality and gender. Having done these things is tantamount to loving only 1/2 or 3/4 or 7/8 of the person instead of loving the whole person.
