Hello and welcome to another edition of ISV Radio. Today we talk about the LGBTQ community and this show is particularly special as I am joined by two great friends, Amanda Barrera and David Calvillo. I have known Amanda since my High School Days (which has been a long time ago at this point lol) and met David via Amanda. I wanted to invite them to help me discuss a topic that has been heavy on my heart for awhile, the topic of Religion and the LGBTQ community. It stems from seeing people who say they live their life around Love, yet seem to have a hard time showing it to certain groups of people. I know this is not the case for everyone, but I see it more often then not, and felt like I needed to record a show to in order to express to people that LOVE is MY religion/Spirituality/moral meter and that Love is rooted in the life and example of Jesus. That is the kind of “religion/spiritually” I want to spread and I want to express to those that are hurting that there are people who love you and identify with what you are going through. David said it best during the show, “We are survivors.” and I am glad they are but what about those who are/were not? What happens to those who are going through this right now? Just know you are not alone. David and Amanda graciously said if you have any questions/concerns or just need someone to talk to, you can email me (i'll pass them along) or post them here. You are not alone my friends.
I ask that you listen with an open mind and heart, we are just trying to open the forum to discuss, learn and listen from other. We at ISV Radio believe that with open dialogue we can understand each other and make this world a better place one podcast at a time.
