There are many folks, myself included, that weigh in on gay issues from a “Christian” perspective. Too often the result is talking heads shouting past each other. This week I found a series of excellent posts by a guy named Paul Burkhart via Michael Kimpan’s blog. I found the posts insightful with the proper amount of sarcasm (Paul’s spiritual gift, evidently) and enough depth to be substantive but not burdensome. I love Paul’s tone. I especially love how he states clearly where he is in the third post. I think if more pastors would speak clearly on where they are we’d find there is more of a consensus of this issue than there appears to be at times.
Full disclosure: I’m in agreement with much, if not most, of what Paul has written. Check out his posts!
You may disagree with Paul, but I hope you see how this discussion can happen in a constructive way that gets at substantive points.
