“Don’t call yourself gay”; “don’t have gay friends”; “pray harder for God to change you”; “act more manly”; “keep dating women until you find the right one.” As sexual minorities, we often face objections from within our own faith, from fellow believers — be they peers, parents, or pastors. How do we respond when we face objections for our sexuality? How do we move forward through the resistance?

Join Tom and YOBcast newcomers Pastor Ben and Pastor Will as we dive into some common “Side B” objections. And as we reaffirm to one another and to you that you are not alone in whatever spiritual objections you face.

Enjoy the episode! And don’t forget to comment below.
