Evangelical Christian Mom Becomes an Unlikely Advocate

If you had asked Kathy Baldock 10 years ago if you could be both gay and Christian, the devout evangelical would’ve told you ’no’. But one day while hiking near her Reno home, she befriended a fellow hiker who happened to be a lesbian. As the two became good friends, Baldock had a change of heart; she began questioning everything she’d believed about gays and lesbians.

"It slapped me in the face," said Baldock, remembering the first time she went to a worship service with gay Christians in 2007. "I ended up on the floor crying and being so sorry for all the prejudices I had. I realized that something was very wrong with my theology." Full story here!
