What, of any of that, makes him amount to "the Orthodox Gay Community"?
Did it cross your mind that many gay Orthodox might be afraid to sign a public letter like this one? Until that can be done without fear of reprisal, who's to say how representative of the "community" this letter is?
You are saying that the letter was written by the collaboration of a silent but substantial network of Orthodox gay folks, but only this man was willing to sign?
I'm no doubt not alone in saying that I've never heard of either the broad Christian group this letter came from or the Orthodox group that sent it, to say nothing of the man who signed it until Mike gave us some information about him. If anyone here knows who the membership of these LGBT Christian groups are and how many of them support the letter we're discussing, they have not shared that information with us here.
But let's try not to be willfully obtuse. My point in the post you're responding to--and I suspect it's a point everyone who has been arguing on either side of this question here would agree with--is that there is a silent group of Orthodox (or if one prefers "Orthodox") Christian (or "Christian" if that fits one's definition of the term better) gays/lesbians, their supportive friends and relatives, in some cases no doubt even their priests, who would be afraid to sign an open letter calling for dialogue with the Church for fear of experiencing negative repercussions within their congregations. Those who support the status quo can do so openly without fear.
