I’ve written a brief position paper entitled: ‘A case for full inclusion of gay Christians in the life and ministry of the local church, written for normal people.’

I didn’t write this for pastors or Bible scholars. If you are hoping for a lot of footnotes, quotes, and intellectual depth, you will be sorely disappointed.
I have written this for normal people. This is for parents who just had a son or daughter come out to them and they are trying to figure out a way forward. If you have been hiding your same-sex or both-sex attraction for years, fearing that your parents, Christian friends, or church will reject you, this is for you. If you grew up in a traditional, conservative church that told you the Bible clearly condemns the ‘gay lifestyle’, and aren’t sure where you stand on this important issue, this is for you. If you have been looking for someone safe to dialogue with about this subject, this is for you. If you have been told that no Bible-believing Christian can be supportive of same-sex marriage or full acceptance of gay Christians in the church, I wrote this simple paper to show you that Bible-believing, Jesus-loving Christians can indeed believe this, and how do I know? Because I am one, and I’m not the only one.
