posted on October 27, 2022

For The Washington Post Magazine, Britt Peterson reports that Mama Bears, a support group for Christian mothers of LGBTQ children, has grown from a small organization to 35,000 members worldwide. Peterson spoke to Marie Griffith, the editor of Religion & Politics and the director of the John C.
