Religious Right Still Wrong About Gays

January 4, 2011

Seven years ago I found an hour long Christian program on TV. I liked the husband/wife ministers of this non-denominational church. Since they were close by, I decided to attend their taping. Immediately I found they were right wing Christians so I had to find out what there belief was on homosexuality. I came out to the woman minister and found they were totally condemning. On the taping of their 5th show they spoke on human sexuality, reading from I Corinthians 6:9-11 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived, neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.” When the woman minister read the word ‘homosexual’ she looked directly into my eyes. After the show ended we broke into small groups to discuss what we had heard. Of course I spoke in direct opposition to their belief that homosexual love was a sin; that one was going to Hell unless they remained celibate. I was silenced after speaking for 5 minutes and was told I was welcome in their church, but could not speak about homosexuality. That’s Christian?? I left and never returned and continued my ministry of gay affirmation based on the Bible. Now, the woman minister was a converted Roman Catholic and her minister husband a converted, agnostic Jew. Neither seemed to know that there is no Hebrew or Greek word that translates into ‘homosexual’, but that did not sway their belief. What really made me laugh was the fact that this church met in a Jewish Center preaching salvation thru Christ ONLY, but neither minister condemned Jews to Hell. They just can’t get it thru their heads that a person can be gay and saved. Don’t buy into their erroneous condemnation of homosexuals. Remember, God is the Judge, not us humans.
Order my book “Is God A Gay Basher?” on Amazon and find out more of what the Bible has to say about homosexuality (nowhere does it condemn).

Why read my autobiography??

December 3, 2009

Lest anyone think my autobiography is a shallow, worthless ego trip, let me clarify. Everyone has a story to tell that can help another. Surely there are others who could and have written how God freed them from a variety of sinful behaviors.
Raised in a Christian family, fundamentally influenced, I was torn between my love for God and my homosexuality. I take the reader through my life, using the Bible, with all its passages that ‘seem’ to condemn homosexuality and show how the Bible has been misinterpreted and mistranslated on the homosexual issue as well as others. Homosexuality is NOT a sin!  I believe Scripture interprets Scripture and I believe in context when reading the Bible. In doing so, fundamental literalism is not discarded, but seen in a more realistic manner. This opens one’s eyes and hearts to the Bible’s truth and, in doing so, can free homosexuals who are struggling to find peace with God and free homophobes who condemn homosexuals to see the error of their beliefs.
Every life is a story of evolution; a journey; a search for truth, love and security. Mine is but one. One well worth reading.
