Religions grapple with LGBT issues

The Human Rights Campaign has recently compiled an interesting and comprehensive list of U.S. religious groups and how each is grappling with gay and transgender issues. Whether extremely conservative and condemning, such as Islam and the Southern Baptist Convention, or more liberal and accommodating, such as the United Church of Christ and Reform Judaism, it is interesting to see how each religious group is handling LGBT issues in this modern age of information and human equality. A section on Hinduism was also recently added.
