A good treatment of the stark difference between a church that's "welcoming" and one that's "affirming." On it's face, one might think there's no difference. This interview goes beyond the mechanics of a welcoming church that says "you can come in, but you'll never be a FULL member here," and looks at the devastation when a believer hits the glass ceiling in the organization.

Thanks for capturing the emotions behind this story!
