Sadly, we Christians are renowned for our negative attitudes. According to David Kinnamen in his book, unChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks about Christianity ... and Why It Matters, we are thought of by "outsiders"—that is, those who are not involved in church—as first, antigay (91 percent); second, judgmental (87 percent); and third, hypocritical (85 percent). This is a tragedy!
As Christians, we cannot just bury our heads in the sand when it comes to the topic of same-sex attraction. This issue is here to stay, and we would do well to think it through. I've heard, "Love the sinner but hate the sin" many times, but I still wonder, how would Jesus react?
You may disagree with me, but when I was sent this video via Luke 10 over the weekend, I was moved and inspired. Jordan Bunch originally produced it for CenterPeace, an organization I had not heard of before. It is the most sensitive and best response I have yet seen.
