Trying to earn God's love by trying to change one's sexual orientation is a damaging and evil form of legalism. Wisdom 11:24 You love everything that exists and hate nothing that you have made; had you hated anything, you would not have formed it. God does not hate you or you would not be created gay, created lesbian, created bisexual or created you queer. Your body is the temple of the living God. God loves you or God would not live in you. Your broken spirit will start to heal when you accept the fact that God loves you and wants you to be just as God created you.

We represent religious institutions in every ward in the District. We have worked together over many years for peace and justice and now join our voices again to speak a faithful word for freedom and equality.We declare that our faith calls us to affirm marriage equality for loving same-sex couples. Our religious traditions and scriptures teach us that wherever love is present, God is also present. One of God's greatest gifts to us is our human capacity to love one another. The ability of two people to enter into relationships and form families of love and care is one expression of this gift. It is holy and good. We therefore affirm the right of loving same-gender couples to enter into such relationships on an equal basis with loving heterosexual couples.
