This posting is very dear to my heart after 1 year of having an epiphany about how I could serve God’s people by addressing the spiritual and scriptural needs of God’s love for Same Gender Loving people from a non-traditional perspective. This posting echoes and embraces just about all of my personal and spiritual convictions with very profound scriptural soundness in dealing with homosexuality and the bible. I have included an excerpt from the Rev. Dr. Mel White’s bio. It is crucial that you double click on the link at the end of this posting in order to read this Powerful Biblical Response to the Question People Often Ask… “How can you consider yourself a Christian when you are also gay?”

Hopefully I have served you well with the monthly and sometimes bi-monthly postings which has included excerpts from my personal testimony “Son of a Bishop,” news articles, and other submissions of truth and reality peppered with my personal editorial.

The Rev. Dr. Mel White has been a Christian minister, author, and filmmaker all his adult life. Raised as an evangelical Christian, taught that homosexuality was a sin, he fought to overcome his own homosexual orientation for decades in all ways available to him: prayer, psychotherapy, exorcism, electric shock, marriage and family. That struggle and his halting, poignant steps to understand and accept his homosexuality, reconcile it with his Christian faith, and express his sexuality respectfully and responsibly, are described in his book "Stranger at the Gate: To Be Gay and Christian in America," published in 1994. His latest book, "Religion Gone Bad - The Hidden Dangers of Fundamentalism," published in 2006.
“How can you consider yourself a Christian when you are also gay?”
Here are the 8 premises that he has laid out for you.
1. Most people have not carefully and prayerfully researched the Biblical texts used by some people to condemn God's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender children.
2. Historically, people's misinterpretation of the Bible has left a trail of suffering, bloodshed, and death.
3. We should be open to new truth from Scripture. Even heroes of the Christian faith have changed their minds about the meaning of various Biblical texts.
4. The Bible is a book about God. The Bible is not a book about human sexuality.
5. We miss what these passages say about God when we spend so much time debating what they say about sex.
6. The Biblical authors are silent about homosexual orientation as we know it today. They neither approve it nor condemn it.
7. The prophets, Jesus, and the Biblical authors say nothing about homosexual orientation as we understand it today. But, they are clear about this one thing. As we search for truth, we are to "Love one another."
8. Whatever some people believe the Bible seems to say about homosexuality, they must not use that belief to deny homosexuals their basic civil rights. To discriminate against sexual or gender minorities is unjust and un-American.
