Christians Openly Supporting LGBT Community In ‘We’re Not All Like That’ Campaign (VIDEO)

LGBT support

Some Christians have a message for members of the LGBT community, but it’s not the one you might think. Instead of the ranting, railing, self-righteous hate that is so typical of right wing Christians, these Christians want people to know “We’re not all like that.” In fact, “The Not All Like That Christians Project” is the name of a new campaign, which launched during the first week of September, 2013.

Dan Savage, creator of the “It gets better” campaign, is inviting Christians from across the country who support LGBT rights to video-tape themselves sending the “We’re not all like that” message to members of the gay and lesbian community. Some of the videos are touching, some humurous, others apologetic.

Savage explains in his own video on NALT’s website that when he was travelling the country speaking to LGBT youth during the “It Gets Better” campaign, Christians were “forever coming up to me and saying we’re not all like that.” He says he heard it so often that he began to think of them as “NALT” or “not all like that” Christians. Savage says he wants Christians to not just tell him, but to tell the LGBT community, tell other Christians and other non-Christians. He says that Christians need to tell the Evangelical church leaders who claim to speak for all Christians, that in truth they do not.

All in all more than 40 videos have been uploaded by Christians who support the LGBT community, during the first week of the campaign. Videos have come from men and women from all around the country, with many more expected to participate once word about the campaign gets out. Here are some of the videos already on the NALT web-site.
