Will Targeted Nightclub Shooting Begin an Overdue Conversation About Religions' Attitudes Toward Gays?

After the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, it's "time to recognize that anti-gay bigotry is not religious freedom" says CBC columnist, Neil Macdonald.

Neil Macdonald writes:
People of faith might ask themselves this: even if they've never so much as lifted a hand to a gay person, have they smiled at a homophobic joke? Or overlooked mistreatment? Or nodded during an anti-gay sermon?

And if so, wouldn't this be a good time to speak up?
