Support Increasing for LGBT Rights in the US

3 posts in this topic

Perhaps most surprisingly, the majority of Evangelical protestants and Republicans were even found to support transgender rights and legal protections. This seems to signal a return to the foundation of equality in which both Christians and Republicans have purported to believe. For many Christians, Jesus' imperative to "love others as yourself" must be carried over to transgender folks. It can be hoped that this positive shift in attitude will allow churches to become crucial support and organizing centers for transgender individuals and activists. Likewise, inclusion in church groups is often important for trans people who grew up in religious families but have felt isolated from this community. Greater inclusion in religious and social groups may lead to even greater awareness of the struggles that trans individuals face.
