BET has has sparked a much needed conversation on an original documentary, Holler If You Hear Me […], which explores the influence of the black church on the LGBT community. This special documentary was created by Journalist/TV Personality, Clay Cane, as he interviewed gay, lesbian, and transgender people in Atlanta, Georgia.
There were a few quotes that stood out as I watched the film:
“How can someone value their life, if they’re told their existence is a sin?”
“If you are homosexual and you have heterosexual sex, that is a sin.”
“If we are so right that we are damaging people, it undermines all of our rightness–because at the bottom line, you’ve got to be able to relate in a loving way to people.”
“God is Love.”
