Christianity & LGBTQ Issues
Of all the issues I write and speak about, I am most widely known for my decades of work at the intersection of Christian faith and LGBTQ issues.
Scroll down for my blog posts on these two topics. In addition:
- My book Torn is the best introductory resource I know of for Christians who are new to the LGBTQ conversation and want to understand better.
- You can bring me to speak to your church or group—not only on LGBTQ issues, but also on topics like forgiveness, rebuilding lost faith, and handling division and disagreement.
- I have an ongoing LGBTQ & Christian video series on YouTube to answer many common questions.
- For more on the Scripture arguments, my Bible and Homosexuality page offers a deeper dive.
I really enjoyed this interview…
This week I published a new video and resource page aimed at Christian parents about what to do when a child comes out as LGBT+.
I know, I know. The word “Christian” makes me cringe sometimes, too, and I’m one of them. The truth is, a lot of my friends not only aren’t Christians; they have a really terrible impression of Christians, and considering the behavior of so many Christians, it’s hard to blame them. So it’s probably no surprise…
My friend (and LGBT+ Christian advocate) Kathy Baldock agreed to be my guinea pig for the first in a series of fun Facebook Live interviews with interesting people. We took questions from the live audience while discussing everything from weird Bible history to pineapple on pizza…and the most bizarre sex-related thing I’ve ever heard. I’ve…
I’m tired of the partisanship and polarization—tired of people focusing on what they’re against instead of what they’re for. Here’s what I’m for—as an American and as a Christian. This is my manifesto.
One of the silliest, most fun things I ever wrote is back online by popular demand…and this time, it’s got a full-length special commentary to go with it!
Is it wrong to ask “Did God really say that?” about the things we heard growing up in church? Some people say it’s “the Devil’s oldest trick.” But watch out—because this story has a plot twist.
Last week, Franklin Graham posted that “The Bible is very clear. God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of homosexuality.” But is that true? In this new video, I dig into what the Bible does—and doesn’t—say about Sodom and Gomorrah.
People have been asking me for this for years. In this video, I explain why Christians need a more nuanced approach to the Bible and homosexuality—and where I believe that nuanced approach should lead us.
In a world where majority groups and minority groups so often fail to understand each other, is there a place for empathy? (This was the last talk I ever gave at The Gay Christian Network’s annual conference.)
