Evangelical pastor Mike Erre posts apology (of sorts) to LGBTQ community

by Jeremy Hooper

Tony Perkins was just complaining about this on his radio show. That's reason enough for me to post it:

Now, I obviously don't agree with much of the content or spirit within this letter. But it's still kind of interesting to see a pastor who I'm told is something of a rising star making such a public proclamation. To us, this whole apology may seem like a small concession, what with its support for "transformation" and whatnot. But to ardent evangelicals who fight us in the political realm, this kind of thing is a public notice of sorts. It's a repudiation of the hostile voices that you read here every day (thus the reason why Tony Perkins is so bothered by it) and the political rhetoric that has defined the religious right for the better (worse?) part of three decades.
