Clobber The Clobber Passages
Put the clobber passages to rest for good by learning how they’re misinterpreted, traps to avoid when talking about them, and how to lead people to LGBTQ affirmation
Whether you’re new to being affirming, on the journey to getting there, or you’ve been a supporter forever, you probably get asked a lot about those pesky verses that seem to condemn LGBTQ+ folks.

But then we go two steps further showing you how even these passages might have a liberating message and how to use everything you’re learning to have more effective conversations with people still on the journey.
