When it comes to social justice Church organizations always omit gay rights.
Whether it be in church, from the pulpit, in justice ministry, orders of nuns or religious gay rights seem always to be out of bounds.
And it doesn't help to remind them when they are talking about human rights issues that gays and lesbians are persecuted in this world.
Perhaps it is because it is the Church which is doing the persecuting.
But even so called liberal Churches omit gay rights from their agendas.
You will hear many pleas for asylum seekers, the homeless, battered wives, drug addicts, gambling addicts, Aborigines, even Muslims but you will seldom hear gays and lesbians mentioned.
We have been relegates to the status of religious non-persons.
We don't even rate a mention.
