About the NALT Christians Project
The purpose of The NALT Christians Project is to give any and all LGBT-affirming Christians a means of sharing their belief that there is nothing anti-biblical or sinful about being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.
How does it work? You make a YouTube video saying that you are both Christian and fully affirming of LGBT-people; you upload your video onto your (free and easily obtainable) YouTube channel; via the Submit form on the NALT Christians website you inform the NALT gang that your video is ready to go; soon thereafter your video is added to the chorus of other videos on the NALT Christians website that are helping to change the world.
Why should I make a NALT Christians video?
- To refute the widespread belief that Christianity is synonymous with anti-gay bigotry.*
- To counteract the destructive effects on all young people of the message that God condemns and rejects LGBT people.
- To support and encourage other LGBT-affirming Christians.
* When asked by The Barna Group what words or phrases best describe Christianity, the top response among Americans ages 16-29 was “antihomosexual.” For a staggering 91 percent of non-Christians, this was the first word that came to their mind when asked about the Christian faith. The same was true for 80 percent of young churchgoers. (The next most common negative images? “Judgmental,” “hypocritical,” and “too involved in politics.”)
