    Marriage Equality: LGBT Advocate Ben Patrick Johnson, Kelly McCracken Plaintiff

    in LGBT

    Welcome to the very first podcast of the "Left of Str8" Show!  The first episode premiere's right after the landmark victory in Marriage Equality in the Supreme Court, and for the first show, we are excited to have one of the plaintiffs in that historic case, Kelly McCracken from Ohio, talking about her road to the Supreme Court while trying to be the legal co-parent on her and her wife's daughter, Ruby's birth certificate.  


    We also have longtime LGBT Advocate, Ben Patrick Johnson from L.A., a familiar voiceover actor, whose voice is featured literally on hundreds of movies and television openings, as well as being a huge advocate for California's Prop 8 marriage equality case, a husband, a philanthropist, and an author, where this August, his 5th book is coming out, SPLINTERS.


    We hope you will enjoy our first show and we apologize for the first minute and a half of audio issues.

    Marriage Equality makes the Anti-LGBT nuts go crazy!

    in Religion

    At last we have marriage equality in all 50 states!!  Hooray!!  It's time to celebrate!! But not everyone is so happy.

    I gathered some awesome people who were kind enough to join me for an impromptu recording session.  These people are the sauce of awesome.  Even though a few people cut out and never came back, I'm so glad these people joined me.

    Hugh Mann, the kindest person in the world, who could not be moved to berate the hate slung at him from the right.
    K Renee Davis Pelt, the coolest person in Evansville, Indiana!
    Ray Riley, who until this podcast recording was only a facebook friend and now has risen to the status of awesome.
    Kelsey Hollis, a personal friend and seriously awesome person.  
    Kristen, the reason I spent three hours editing this show.

    Addressing the Pink Elephant: The Black Church and the LGBT Community.

    in Christianity

    No matter where you fall on the spectrum, all of us need to strongly consider and dialogue about how we will do ministry in a world that will no longer define marriage and sexuality by traditional terms.  


    The overall objective of this conversation is NOT to force a change in people's opinions or theologies; the main purpose is to begin the much-needed dialogue on the realities of doing ministry with the LGBT community in mind.  Whether you affirm or deny homosexuality theologically, we can all agree all people are worthy of experiencing God's love; and we must admit that the church has traditionally been a very hostile and hypocritical place for LGBT individuals. How do we do ministry today in a way that upholds our biblical convictions (as diverse as they may be), and still demonstrate love to a community (as diverse as it may be)?


    Special Guest: Pastor Dwight Radcliff


    Pastor Radcliff holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies (with highest honors) from the Long Beach Bible College, and a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary (with an emphasis in Multi-Cultural Ministry/African-American Church Studies). He is currently pursuing his PhD.


    Special Guest: Pastor Curt Thomas


    Pastor Curt Thomas is a graduate of Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he received a Bachelor of Science in Education.  He furthered his study in ministry by completing a certificate program with Interdenominational Theology Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia. He incorporates the knowledge and skills garnered from his studies in his approach to educating, counseling, andempowering his church members and community members at large. Pastor Thomas serves as the Senior Pastor of The Renewed Church of Los Angeles.
