I’m writing in response to the Kennebec Journal Feb. 3 article, “Maine gets Ministry that Supports Gays Wishing to Change.” I believe that my letter is indeed of general public interest.

The Rev. Kevin Martin of St. Michaels Parish has graciously and unselfishly accepted the leadership of ministry, out of love of God and the desire to be of help for “those so seeking.”

To those readers who have verbally attacked Father Kevin and his appointment to the Maine chapter of Courage, a worldwide support group, I offer the following excerpt from Luke 6:27-38: “Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.”
