I suggest you send a contribution of $15 to

Communications Office
Diocese of Bethlehem
333 Wyandotte Street
Bethlehem, PA 18015

and ask for the 1.5 hour video of Bishop Marshall on "How do we read
the bible?"  It is a superb record of his presentation at the
Cathedral of the Nativity, all done as the background for his consent
to the election of +VGR.     Every Christian needs to experience this
resource.  It is brilliant, accessible, and makes several points that
I have not encountered anywhere else.

You might also buy your friend a copy of LIVING IN SIN, by perhaps the
most famous and widely read of our straight allies.

Don't dare let her get near a real live lesbian or gay male Christian,
however, lest she see Jesus' face shining in ours.
