The word “clobber” means to hit hard, defeat heavily, treat or deal with harshly.  Christians have long used a few passages in the bible to “clobber” people, especially those who identify or support LGBTQIA individuals.  However, they have also been used to justify racism, anti-Semitism and misogyny.  We will examine these passages and learn how to respond to those who use them to do harm.  You will be equipped to recognize and respond when someone uses these passages to defend their position.  Please register HERE.
