be not afraid – help is on the way! straight for equality in faith communities. Be not afraid – help is on the way! straight for equality in faith communities aims to move the way we understand our religious beliefs and our relationships with LGBTQ people – and support for equality – away from the either/or, “love the sinner, hate the sin” framework and to a place where people can try to understand that you can be a person of faith, loyal to your religion’s teachings, and someone who supports their LGBTQ friends and family.
