A couple interesting links:

– A gay-friendly pastor, Andrew Marin, promised to build bridges between evangelicals and the LGBT community. Many groups put their trust in his message. Turns out that at the same time, he was leading training sessions for anti-gay groups and saying on Christian radio that homosexuality was a sin. There’s a conflict of interest if ever there was one…

– A new Bible just cuts out all those confusing, controversial passages. According to this article,

…those troublesome verses about justice for the poor, responsibility for the rich to address their neighbors’ needs, and all that talk about money, are gone. Not just edited out, cut out.

A report from Assist News Service said the Western Bible Foundation published the book to meet the “growing wish of many churches to be market-oriented and more attractive.”

    I don’t know if this blog is still active or not, but I am doing research on this foundation, and some fact checking.

    Seems that Melissa Garvey and Emily Webster should be asked directly about the character and purpose of the Marin Foundation. Follow the money, or the intent to make money off of an unsuspecting gay community.

    This disturbing information about getting money from the Bush administration, using people’s photos on a webside without permission, claiming donors that don’t exist…that is material information. Check the material. Evangelical money makers are nothing new, and the place is crawling with them.

    Anyone who has a clever answer about gays being sinners etc, usually uses God says it, and that’s what they really think. Well intentioned or not, this is not in the best interest of the gay community.

    So I’d like to know the material truth of Webster’s and Garvey’s charges.
