Can We Change Our Theology?

How Religion Is Killing Our Most Vulnerable Youth

I read the article, How Religion is Killing Our Most Vulnerable Youth, on the Huffington Post (click the link above to read it for yourself).  Do you agree with the author of this article that nothing short of changing our theology of human sexuality will save the young lives he refers to in this article?  My understanding of theology is the study of God.  With that understanding, changing our theology would mean changing God.  We cannot change God.

I think Bishop Robinson is using the wrong argument.  It is about changing our attitudes toward the LBGT children that needs to change; not our theology.  We must not alienate these children, but embrace them with the love of Christ.  If we all had that attitude, then perhaps things would change.
