Why We Need Churches Like Nexus

I go back and forth on the whole church thing.  Is it worth it?  Why am I doing it?  Then, I get a reminder of why we need churches like Nexus.  This is a real email from a pastor:
Darlene, I'm glad I ran across your blog. I still miss you. I am sorry
to hear that your lover died of breast-cancer. Darlene is God sending
you a message? Please consider coming back to Exodus. You are loved and
missed. Why would God call you back to lesbianism, give you a lover and
then take her away. I'm sorry that you are going through this. My heart
is breaking right now but I believe that you belong to the Lord and "He
chastizes the one's that he loves". I believe He is calling you back.
If you want to talk I am here to listen. Please call me at [removed] if
you want to talk. May God Bless You,

Anthony Falzarano

There's so much wrong with that, I won't even bother to start to tear it apart.  Thank G-d, Darlene had an excellent response, which you can read here.  But, man do we need places where people can go and not get this type of "comforting".
