Episode 16: Is it Possible to be Gay and Christian?

On the one hand there is the Christian stance which makes it clear that homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God and on the other hand is another Christian stance which makes it clear that "Biblical homosexuality" is not the same as the lived experiences of gay persons who are involved in healthy monogamous relationships. How do gay Christians reconcile what the Bible has expressly laid out on more than one occasion with their sexual orientation? How do fundamentalist Christians reconcile the fact that sexual orientation is not a choice with the orthodox stance on homosexuality? Is being gay a sin, and if it is, is it worse than other sin? Is there a difference between a celibate gay Christian and a celibate straight Christian? 

These questions will form the basis of the next episode of the Yardie Skeptics Radio show this Sunday, September 22nd at 12:30pm EST (11:30am Jamaica time).
