I like the United Church of Christ. They promote social justice and many churches are open to and affirming of LGBTQ people.

Then occasionally I see something like this - Today's Still Speaking devotional:

Jesus didn't come to do away with the Torah; he came to write it on our hearts. He came to teach it to us so well, make us so conversant in it and so in love with it, that we would become virtuosos of the Law. He came to teach us how to make our lives masterworks of Torah, living the deep truth of it so deeply that we even seem to be breaking it sometimes. He came to teach us not to do away with it, but to fulfill it.

I have no idea what this means. So in love with it? He must be talking about a different 'Law'.
