GAY and CHRISTIAN?Well, I for one was interested! Today I sat down with the undergrad student to discuss how to start things. The details I will save for another post. But we have something I wish to hear back on from you! You see, to register the organization, we need ... a name.
I am interested in trying to start a RSO (registered student organization) Christian group that is openly gay friendly. Being a gay Christian myself, I have found it incredibly difficult to find others like me. I know a lot of students turn away from religion because it is assumed that most religions are not accepting. And even though some groups that are already on campus will say that they won't turn anyone down, you can still feel the vibe that they believe you are in the wrong and are constantly judging you. If anyone else out there would be interested in helping organize a group that is an honest exploration of Christianity in a safe, nonjudgmental environment, please contact me.
So if you have ideas, please let me know. The time horizon is unfortunately short, as we plan to register the organization with the University tomorrow at ~3:30pm central. Should it be obvious, like "Gay Christian Students"? Or perhaps more creative, like "Genesis 3:13" (go ahead, look it up)?
Whatever your ideas, I'd love to hear them. And soon!
