National Cathedral dean calls homophobia and heterosexism a sin

On Monday, October 7th, 2013

Gary HallThe main argument for those against homosexuality is that it is a sin and goes against the teachings of the Bible. But the Bible doesn’t teach hatred and that’s the message the dean of Washington National Cathedralsent out during a weekend of events for gay youth at the church. As the Associated Press reports on October 6, Rev. Gary Hall has labeled homophobia a sin.

Hall used the killing of Matthew Shepard and the suicide Tyler Clementi to support his message to you that “shaming people for whom they love is a sin.” He also stated in his Sunday sermon the church’s role in calling out homophobia and heterosexism as a sin.

With the rise of anti-gay crimes across throughout the country and across the world and with the high rate of suicide committed by LGBT youth, Hall’s message was that of compassion as he relayed the message of intolerance against any form of hatred.

On Friday, the cathedral begin the weekend by hosting a screening of the new documentary “Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine”, a film about Matthew Shepard’s life involving interviews with friends and family members.

Hall also hosted a forum on Sunday with Shepard’s mother, Judy Shepard, and Jane Clementi, the mother of Tyler Clementi.

About - Tarringo T. Vaughan always believed he had a love affair with literature.

His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
