Jesus spoke to women who were an underclass in Jewish society.
He spoke to Samaritans who were despised enemies of the Israelites.
Jesus dined with tax-collectors (Roman collaborators) and prostitutes.
Even St. Paul included Jew and Greek, male and female, slave and free.....
So why do modern Christians struggle to accept gays and lesbians?
The inclusive behavior of the historical Jesus leads us to believe that he would have included gays and lesbians in his New Covenant.
Even so the time has come to discard out-dated notions of superiority and exclusiveness.
God does not discriminate.
He loves everyone.
Including gays and lesbians.
