In Sydney, Australia, a group of Christian ministers marched in a Mardi Gras parade over the weekend. Normally, you know where this type of story is going: the homophobic Christians condemn the gays, there’s lot of yelling and Bible-verse-spewing and gnashing of teeth, and the day ends with everyone a little more pissed off than when it began.

That’s not what happened here, though.

Why did the ministers march?

To “say sorry to the gay and lesbian community for the treatment they received from Christian churches.”

It’s a positive gesture even though the 100Revs don’t make any official statement on the Biblical position on GLBT relationships.
