"How disheartened I was after reading 'You call this inspiring ?' the letter in response to the election of the Rev. Dr. Gary Paterson, the first gay moderator of the United Church of Canada ['Anglican Journal', Dec. 2012, p. 3]. .... This [letter] bleeds of the hatred and bigotry present in our faith circles. I really don't believe this is anything my God would support. .... I am so thankful my family brought me up to be loving and open to what life brings our way".
