For centuries, organized religion has been one of the main forces of prejudice and rejection of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. But the fact is, not all religious traditions are unfriendly to LGBT people, and some old ways of reading the Bible are being re-examined in new and welcoming ways. While many LGBT people struggle with the conflicts of being both religious and gay, many others are finding support and inclusion in religious communities that have entered the twenty-first century committed to the full inclusion of LGBT people. Learn about how the world's major religious traditions—Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism—view homosexuality, and how faithful LGBT people within these traditions deal with the issues they face. Examine some of the reasons why some religious groups continue to condemn homosexuality and reject LGBT people. And discover that many religions have always had a place for gay and lesbian people in their communities, and how others are working hard to create that place.
