The Parable of the Progressive Gay Christian and the Christian


A postmodern parable of pride, humility, mercy, and grace…

“And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two women went up into a church to pray; the one a progressive gay Christian, and the other a Christian who struggled daily with bisexual temptations. The progressive gay Christian stood and prayed thus with herself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other people are, capitalist, racist, homophobic, misogynist, or even as this fundamentalist Christian. I volunteer twice in the week at the local LGBTQ teen center, I donate to the Human Rights Campaign. And the Christian, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as her eyes unto heaven, but smote upon her breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this woman went down to her house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth herself shall be abased; and she that humbleth herself shall be exalted.”
