“At no point during our church’s General Convention will I pit the interests of people of color against the interests of LGBTQ people to achieve an end desired primarily by straight, white guys.”

Jim Naughton

Fellow straight, white #Episcopal guys, I invite you to join me in this pledge:

“At no point during our church’s General Convention will I pit the interests of people of color against the interests of LGBTQ people to achieve an end desired primarily by straight, white guys.

“Because this is how we straight, white guys persuade ourselves that we act not for ourselves, but for a greater good. And it is seldom true.”
