We are in a period of American history in which everything about the way our country has functioned since it’s inception is being dismantled and deconstructed. Since the very founding of our nation, our leaders have been driven, largely unconsciously, by the power of patriarchy. Patriarchy is, at it’s most rudimentary level, the belief that men are best suited to lead and are the ideal example of what a human should look like. Built in to a patriarchal mindset is… Read more

The topics of religious liberties and human rights are two of the most fundamental values embedded into our national consciousness as Americans. From the very conception of our nation, we have been a people who have defended the right of all people to worship whatever they believe in without fear of discrimination or persecution. We have also, increasingly, become a nation who values the life and rights of all people, especially minorities within our nation. In order to achieve a… Read more

Donald Trump’s new campaign logo, featuring his Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence has been raising eyebrows across the internet all day. The logo, seen below, features a “T” , for Trump, seemingly penetrating a “P”, for Pence. Almost immediately people recognized that this symbolism, whether purposeful or accidental, represented a very real behavioral trend demonstrated by Donald Trump, a trend of being the dominate, forceful, dictator to those who work for him or around him. As soon as I saw… Read more

Over the past few months, I’ve been hard at work  developing the content for my new book, tentatively titled Forward: The Kingdom of God and the Case for Inclusion. This book will be a theology/spirituality book that seeks to present a comprehensive case that the trajectory of the Gospel and the Kingdom of God is towards the full inclusion of sexual and gender minorities, the deconstruction of patriarchy, and the liberation of all people both spiritually and literally.

Following the shooting of nearly 50 LGBT+ people in Orlando, I and many others have begun to speak up about the damage that non-inclusive, non-affirming religious teaching causes in the hearts and minds, not only of LGBT+ people who hear it, but in all people who hear it. The Christian Church has, for thousands of years, promoted a homophobic message that does not beget life, but produces fear, hatred, and death. For thousands of years, Christians, in the name of… Read more

In his latest book, “Us Versus Us”, Andrew Marin, a self-identified expert on faith and sexuality unveils a groundbreaking new study about the LGBT+ community and our relation to religion.

I was standing at a gay bar in London when news flashed across my iPhone that there was a shooting at an LGBT+ nightclub in Orlando.

I saw the news and my initial reaction was to sigh in disbelief, but to presume that this was just another tragic shooting that I’ve become all too familiar with hearing about in the U.S. I whispered a… Read more

On May 13th, the White House, along with the Department of Education and the Department of Justice, announced that public schools must allow students to use the bathroom and locker room that corresponds with their gender identity. As soon as the announcement was made, the conservative Christian world, as expected reacted with great vitriol and fear. Conservative commentator Michael Brown called Christians to “civilly disobey” the Obama administrations mandate, saying “Enough is enough. Too many lines have been crossed, too many… Read more
