  • I would think they had been brave enough to know what they want.

  • Nothing , but commend his strength. I would most likely go to the church more often, because at least he will practice what he preaches and be a judgmental dick.

  • I don't go to church. I've found awful amounts of hypocrisy, cliquiness, a spirit of judgment instead of love, greed, etc in every church I've ever attended. I gave up on them years ago. Christ didn't want people behaving like they do in churches.

  • I don't know what makes you think you should have to "do" anything. Do you like the pastor as a person? And if so, does knowing what you know now change your feelings for him/her? Everyone has skeletons in their closets and people change for reasons. If the person was born one way and felt so strongly that they were not meant to be that way, then they went through time and effort to change their entire life around. I'm sure the pastor just wants to be respected as the individual that he or she is TODAY. The past is just that: past. If he or she has obviously gotten over the past, can't you? If not, get out of that church, but I wouldn't confront that person. What could that possibly accomplish?

  • Honestly I get a little scared of things like that. I've always heard negative things about people like that. I would try to get used the person as they are now.
    Plus I don't go to church, it scares me, and I always want to cry because no matter what I do I am not perfect. Our church is an Episcopal church and is very speachy, it is kind of depressing!

  • Scared? What negative things have you heard that make you scared of a transgender individual?
