  5. Pablo says:

    As rainbow catholics you should know a little more about the Bible. The Psalm quoted in your add is wrong. In fact “Hear a Just Cause” it’s part of David’s prayer and belongs to Psalm 17, 1 and not to the Psalm 7, 1, which contains the lament of David which he sang to Yahweh about Cush the Benjaminite: “Yahweh my God, I take refuge in you, save me from all my pursuers and rescue me”.

      Dear Pablo,
      Thank you so much for your advise. We were so worried about the proper edition of the content texts that we sadly forgot to double check the top image.

      We have amended this mistake thanks to your counseling!

      May God bless you,

  6. As a rainbow protestant I do really appreciate the GNRC meetings in München.

    Jesus said: ‘ This is my commandment that you love each other’

    Blessings! God is good, God is love!

    Good Morning! Thank you for your work on this issue. I am interested in working with this organization in some capacity. As the father of two gay children who feel the church has abandoned them, I would like to teach them the Jesus is more inclusive than what they think. Your organization may help me to help them. Please consider my participation.
