What would you do?

I have questions for credentialed church leaders. If you found out your child or grandchild is gay, would you welcome them into your church? Or would you hold the security of your official position more important than including them? Do you interpret Scripture in light of the teachings of Jesus, who included those not considered worthy of inclusion? What about the [Mennonite Church USA] Forbearance Resolution? If that resolution were followed, would [North Carolina pastor] Isaac Villegas still have his credentials?
