Wait. A Christian Church Donated $200k to Create This LGBT Homeless Youth Center?


Well isn’t this a feel good story about a Christian church and the gay community: The charity arm of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island, which maintains 146 congregations, just donated $200,000 to Carl Siciliano’s Ali Forney Center to create a new 16-bed shelter at the Church of St. Andrew’s in Queens for homeless LGBT youth. Says EDLI’s Bishop Lawrence Provenzano of the donation: “I think it’s an obligation to care for God’s people. This is basic nuts-and-bolts Christianity.” Beautiful.
