Dear His Way Out Ministries…
I work with a guy that’s very ‘out’ about his being gay. I’ve noticed he’s quite a bit more offensive around me than he is with other coworkers. What’s this all about?

Hopefully you are just as ‘out’ about your Christianity as he is about his being gay. If so, he presumes your position on homosexuality. Fearing rejection from you (especially if this has been his experience from other Christians), he is becoming intentionally offensive to protect himself. Respond directly but gently pointing out that he doesn’t seem to act the same with you as with other coworkers. Ask him how you may have offended him unknowingly. This will show how much you value him as a person. If he offers a reply, you might be prepared to ask for forgiveness.
