New Campaign Features Black Southern Pastors Speaking Out For LGBT Justice

 A movement of black churches supporting LGBT equality called "Many Voices" has launched a series of videos featuring LGBT-affirming pastors from the South. Conducted in North Carolina, the interviews challenge the perception all black pastors disapprove of homosexuality.

“All people are worthy of God’s love,” said Rev. Sadler, one of the interviewees in the series. “In essence, sex is at the core of the biblical message. Our fear of sexuality is inconsistent with the biblical text. Our job is not to keep people away…our job is to be open in our welcome.” 

The videos are part of a campaign Many Voices, which works to build relationships between church leaders and the black LGBT community, and offers training and resources.
