the Rainbow Veil: How to Make Your Church a Safe Space for
Christians with Same-Sex Attraction by Jean Lloyd
“When ... everything from the White House to corporate logos turned rainbow, I recalled that year of monumental personal decision when I was struggling with my relationships with God, women, and myself. I remember digging out my Bible, which was dusty from disuse. I dared to look at the first chapter of Romans. The words blurred through my tears as I read. ... I prayed, ‘If it’s wrong, You’ll have to show me another way, because I can’t see it.’ I honestly couldn’t see the truth–it was as if there was a veil over my eyes.
“These days, when I see the multitude of profile pictures on Facebook bearing a rainbow filter, I think of that veil.

But what is most distressing is seeing the rainbow veil over the faces of Christian friends and family.” (Posted 2015/12/25)
