This podcast is part 1 of my interview with Coleman Todd, associate at the Cocoa Beach Community Church, in Cocoa Beach Florida.
I initially reached out to Coleman because I know a young transgender man who is being sent to conversion therapy by his parents, in the name of Christianity. I realized that it is important to speak with faith leaders and scholars about how different religous traditions view our LGBTQ community, and discuss the fact that many Christian denominations and other faith traditions are welcoming. ‘
I hope to help LGBTQ youth and adolescents realize that there are welcoming congregations of Christian faith.
In our conversation we also touch on other social issues, and the concept of caring for one another, and what that means in the lens of Christianity.
