profile mostly of Wesley Hill, w/some commentary from others:
Wesley Hill is convinced that taking a road less traveled doesn’t have to be a lonely journey.
Mr. Hill, a professor at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, and a small corps of other writers around the country have churned out a small library of books and blog posts, united in a single premise.
They believe gay Christians can and should affirm their sexual orientation — but should also commit to celibacy.
The stance runs counter to the growing American majority that supports legalized same-sex marriage among Americans, including religious progressives, as the U.S. Supreme Court weighs a landmark case on whether to legalize it nationwide.
But it also challenges many of his fellow Christian conservatives who still oppose any affirmation of being gay, even in celibacy.
