Homophobia in Church? Finns Say “No Way!”

According to the Helsinki Times and Huffington Post, over 30,000 people have left the Finnish Evangelical-Lutheran Church, the national church of Finland. The reason? They held a debate on LBGT rights and comments made by various folks on the anti side were deemed too homophobic to tolerate.

In general, about 800 people leave the church each week, so this is a major spike. And with 4.3 million members, that’s one out of every 14 members leaving. If one out of every 14 people in the US stood up to homophobia, we might not need the It Gets Better Project.

Just saying.
