A new reader and subscriber, Mary, posed an interesting question in a recent blog entry. Is there such a thing as a Christian Homosexual?
Here was my response to her question:
If by “Christian” homosexual you mean a homosexual who accepts Jesus Christ as his or her savior and follows the teaching of Christ, then the answer is yes. If by “Christian” you mean someone who fits into narrowly defined views of the the world as prescribed by leaders and followers of certain denominations who claim to be “real” Christians and have the “right” interpretation of the New and Old Testaments, then it probably depends upon those individual leaders and followers and not the homosexual person him- or herself.
Thoughts? Anyone want to touch an electric wire? Thanks to Mary for being willing to address the big questions.
Mary also described herself in another post as a returning Xangan and asked for recommendations of blogs worth reading. I want to let you know that my recommendation was that she read the blogs of the people who comment on my blog as there are some really thoughtful, talented writers here. Thanks to everyone for contributing to Xanga and for helping make it a civil place to exchange thoughts and views.
