Pledge to speak with respect

As African American churches struggle for justice, fairness, and equality for all members of society, especially those who are marginalized;

As gay and transgender (LGBT) members of our community and churches are discriminated against and unprotected in many challenging areas, including health care, taxation, housing, employment, and education, and are frequent victims of vicious bullying and violence; and

As I recognize that we Black Christians are not of one mind but hold different opinions, biblical perspectives, and theological understandings;

I therefore pledge to engage in respectful and loving dialogue –
to remain godly in my speaking, demonstrating my respect for differences and Christian love for all.
