Brian McLaren: Is there any way to celebrate “faithful” gay couples?
Brian McLaren: Is there any way to celebrate “faithful” gay couples?:
As you know, several sectors of the church…
a) are already welcoming to gay people in committed (non-promiscuous) relationships.
In some other sectors, b) the churches don’t believe that homosexual behavior is right, but they are still committed to welcoming people and treating them with respect.
And sadly, in many others, c) the churches use language that subjects homosexual people to a continual experience of rejection and shame. As for churches that I know in the “emergent” conversation, I think you’d find a mix of a) and b) above.
I love Brian, but that answer ducked the question!
