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.
