Not because He sometimes makes mistakes. Not because He enjoys to watch them live lonely, frustrated, unfulfilled lives. And not to give Christians a chance to practise their praying skills. Read more > 

I Think God Makes People Gay (Part 2)

I have Christian friends who believe that homosexuality is an abomination, detestable to God. I also have Christian friends who actively affirm homosexuality, and believe that the act of discriminating against and excluding LGBTQIAP people is an abomination, detestable to God. I have non-Christian friends who view Christians as judgemental and unloving because of their attitudes to homosexuality.

Dear Non-LGBT-Affirming Christians, Please Search Your Hearts

I’ve just seen a news article showing the faces of those killed in the Pulse Night Club on Saturday night. Have you seen it? Face after face; beautiful, young, LGBT+ people, their eyes full of light and life. Lives so precious, unique, fragile, sacred. Each one reflecting the image of their Creator. Each one a beloved son or daughter. Their loss is a gaping wound, a searing pain, an everlasting ache. Read more >

Homosexuality and the Bible: An Epic Conversation with my Anti-Theist Brother

…From my point of view, the bible is a text which overtly condemns homosexuality in a number of places and there’s no way of getting round that! This is alongside the passages condoning slavery, mysogeny, violence and other less-than-humanistic activities. Read more >
