As part of the incredible support from all over the community during the crisis of teen suicides, the Bishop Gene Robinson and the Reverend Susan Russell loaned their voices to Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project, a resource of videos reaching out to teens across the nation to let them know firsthand that they are cared for and that there can be love and happiness in their future.
Robinson and Russell are both part of HRC’s Religion Council, an advisory group of religious leaders that embodies the rich diversity of our faith communities in terms of theology, race, gender, geography and sexual orientation.
“God wants you to live in the light of God’s love and that light will take away all of this darkness,” said the Rt. Rev. Robinson in his video speaking to teens. “God loves you beyond your wildest imagination and only wants the best for you. Its get better, I promise. It gets so much better.”
