The Church has been taught to stand up for what we believe in. I don't think we've been taught "well." We can engage with the LGBT community without compromising our convictions. Kaltenbach writes from a unique perspective. He calls his mom "loud and proud," while his dad remained hidden for years--but both gay. He's seen the ugly treatment that gay people have endured and he's seen people who love gays, but don't know how to live that out and still keep their convictions. Kaltenbach writes to both sides of a sensitive issue, and does a good job.
