A Conversation with Justin Lee on Relationships for Gay and Same-Sex Attracted Christians

this is my first answer: The question we've been given is, “What are your beliefs about morally appropriate relationships between persons who experience same-sex attraction?” This is (a modified version of) the question being asked by American culture today, but there are a couple of respects in which I don't think it's the best question to address the needs of our churches and the longings of our hearts.The best thing about this question is its focus on relationships: on love.

Three Corpus Christi Links: Staying Catholic, Seeing Christ, And Ye Olde Romoeroticism

PEG says some stuff I can really relate to: “Where would we go? You have the words of eternal life.”Peter’s words here are the words of a desperate lover, which is definitely what he was.
