Wow, it’s everywhere. If I log on to facebook, twitter, or look at the news, it’s all about the United Methodist Church and their stance on “homosexual practice is not compatible with scripture”, or the vote in North Carolina this week to not allow same sex marriage. I believe that every person should take a stand for what they believe but I also believe that if we are going to take a stand that we need to do our homework and understand what is at stake. When I was in Seminary I had the opportunity to read Robert Gagnon’s book “The Bible and Homosexual Practice.” Notice the book says “homosexual practice.” This is the most thorough work on the subject that I have found and it is good. No matter where you stand on the issue, you should take a bold stand and read this work.
