WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED?
SAVANNAH PROUD & WISE
As a proud senior member of the LGBTQ community, as well as a once member of the Catholic Church, this reaction doesn’t surprise me at all.
I commend this little girl and her parents.
They are accepting and embracing of a young girl who would be having a hard time if all reacted like the members of the church she happens to belong to.
KUDOS TO SAVANNAH AND HER PARENTS!
MORMON CHURCH COMMUNITY
Twelve-year-old Savannah stood before her Mormon church community last month and told them she identifies as a lesbian and believes that God intended to make her that way.
Unfortunately, she was cut off part of the way through her speech by a church official who asked her to sit down, effectively silencing the preteen as she attempted to share her story.
Prior to being interrupted, Savannah offered her powerful and heartwarming personal account about her relationship with her sexuality.
“God loves me just this way, because I believe that he loves all his creations … I do believe he made me this way on purpose,” she says in the video.
“No part of me is a mistake.
I do not choose to be this way, and it is not a fad.
I cannot make someone else gay and being around me won’t make anyone else this way. I believe that God wants us to treat each other with kindness, even if people are different.”
Heather went on to say that Savannah had been asking to share her story in front of the church since last January to possibly let other closeted church members know that they had in ally in her.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
