Susan Cottrell, “The Mother of All Mama Bears”, is a prominent voice for faith parents of LGBTQI children. She has been featured on ABC’s 20/20, Nightline, NBC News and is an international speaker. Susan’s TED talk now has been viewed over one million times, and now Susan makes her triumphant return in the Pews.
The episode commences with Glenn expressing the importance of people not being judged or punished for being open about their respective sexuality. Susan tells of her recent victorious response to breast cancer, a double mastectomy, why she chose not to have reconstructive surgery, how she and her husband Robert handled it and why she called the experience “the gift of cancer”. The importance of living in the present is emphasized and discussed as is the history of FreedHearts (the Cottrells’ foundation) which was birthed when their daughter came out to them and they chose her over their church. The true meaning of homosexuality in the Bible, why it became society’s “scapegoat”, the “command” to love and FreedHeart’s approach to the politics are highlighted, plus so much more. It ain’t going to be boring!
