Special Pride Month edition of “What Would Jesus Pod?” where we dig deep into issues surrounding faith, sexuality, freedom from religious bondage and being an LGBTQ Christian with three leaders: author, speaker and founder of Freedhearts, Susan Cottrell, author and speaker Amber Cantora and AZ nominee for governor and activist, Kelly Fryer.
Amber Cantora is the author of Refocusing My Family and Unashamed: A Coming Out Guide for LGBTQ Christians and the daughter of a 30+ year executive at Focus on the Family. http://ambercantorna.com
Kelly Fryer ran as the first openly gay gubernatorial nominee in Arizona, is a political activist, and former minister. Follow her on Twitter @fryerforarizona.
“If you are in religious bondage, if you are struggling with shame and condemnation, know today that that does not come from the Spirit of God. Jesus does not condemn with shame, he embraces with mercy, grace, love and freedom. And HIS yoke is easy and HIS burden light. Whether it has to do with your sexual or romantic orientation, being a progressive in a red district, or something altogether different from any of this…. If the burden you carry is heavy and weighing you down, that is not a burden given you by Jesus Christ. His burden is easy and his yoke is light. – Matthew 11:28-30.” – Christina Forrester, WWJP host
“You are valuable exactly the way you are, you were created exactly the way you are, there’s nothing wrong with you…you are worthy, worthy of humanitarian treatment and I encourage you to look in the mirror and tell that person you love them because that person was created in God’s image. This is from a mom who loves you.” – Susan Cottrell
