Regarding the May 24 letter to the editor titled “Disappointment To Read.”

I am a Christian, too. I’m also openly gay. I’ve been Confirmed, received Communion, and have been welcomed into churches. God made me — and all of His children — in His image. I am a child of God, and I am gay. You’re entitled to your opinion that my “lifestyle” is a sin. I’m not going to force my beliefs on anyone. Just know this: I and so many of my LGBTQ siblings have grappled with wondering whether the same God that we love also loves us, just as we are. Just as He made us.

Also, one other thing: Not everybody is a Christian.

“My command is this: love one another as I have loved you.” (John, 15:12)
