Mark Hanson, bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, has submitted a video for the “It Gets Better” video essay on YouTube.com, an effortÂ designed to support and encourage gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender young people.
“Iâ€™ve listened with pain and shock to reports of young people taking their lives because theyâ€™ve been bullied and tormented for being different, for being gay or perceived to be gay, for being the people God created them to be,” Hanson said. “I can only imagine what itâ€™s like to be bullied for being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.”
