I really thought that GLADventist was a good name for this blog. It’s a fun mix of two words, works in a lot of languages besides English, and was supposed to be an underlining of how I’m not a MADventist or a SADventist. As such, it’s still a good name.
However, a googling of the term (which, I admit, I probably should have done earlier) introduced me to another group using the name: The Gay and Lesbian Adventist Community. To clear out any misunderstandnings I changed the name of my blog to something a little more boring, I’m afraid.
On the other hand, www.gladventist.org can be interesting reading of sorts. This community argues for showing the love of God, even to a stigmatized group as homosexuals. As far as I can gather it is very far from the Gay Parades now found in many major cities. Rather a humble request for loving care, regardless of our individual sins, problems, or experiences. What would Jesus do?
