LGBTQI+ and Inclusiveness
Although general awareness of human sexuality has expanded in recent times, understandings continue to be in flux, new challenges continue to emerge. The predominant male/female binary view has given way to the realization that gender fluidity, the LGBTQI+1 spectrum, is a ubiquitous part of every race, culture, class, faith traditions &. c. This is so for the Church, as it is for any other human community. There are many Christian families today faced with a dilemma. Although accepting of an LGBTQI+ family member, parents and individuals are often left feeling unsupported in light of Church teachings and practice. Coupled to this fact, adolescents/young adults today are increasingly more aligned to their peers and societal role models rather than traditional values. Many find themselves adrift in a morally relative environment bereft of stable moral norms.
