I applaud the column by 16-year-old Reilley Olexson.

And although she says “labels are for cans, not people,” I would like to label her as courageous and a beacon to other “rainbow chasers” who choose to love differently.

It is remarkable how many people – including a large number of federal MPs and cabinet ministers – still quietly demean homosexuals to win favour with voters who draw their morality from ancient desert scrolls.

Reilley is wanting to be just Reilley, and I don’t get why anyone would want such an inspiring girl to be anyone other.

Reilley Olexson believes her ways are right.

But the Bible declares in Luke 16:15: “And he said unto them, ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your heart: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.”

John 1:9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
