ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS AND LIBERALS HARBOR DIFFERENT VIEWS ON GAY RIGHTS. Influential conservative Christians in the United States, comprised of leaders from almost 90 churches, evangelical seminaries, ministries and publications, of both Orthodox and Catholic clergy, have signed a statement which rejects any kind of legal efforts to protect Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity or SOGI. They believe the proposed SOGI laws threaten basic freedoms. The writings were part of the campaign titled “Preserve Freedom, Reject Coercion” by Colson Center for Christian Worldview.
