Those of you who read these posts via RSS or email may not notice the side column section titled “Others’ View”. It contains items from blogs I regularly read that I find interesting or challenging, and I share them through my Google Reader’s shared items function. You can visit the site, or subscribe to that RSS here, or Google users can connect with me to see my shared items in their own GReader.
Moments ago I shared an item called “The Pope’s Comments About Gays and Lesbians” from Andrew Marin’s blog Love is An Orientation. I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with Andy, he’s the real deal. A Bible-believing, passion-driven human who can’t stand the injustice he sees perpetrated by Christians against one small segment of the population who are same-sex attracted. I can’t wait to read Andy’s book, coming from IVP in April 2009, and also called Love is An Orientation. I think it’s a HUGE, much needed, paradigm shift in the “no, my way” “no, my way” conversation (can you even call it a conversation?) that rages in the Church.
