I wish that all Black church leaders could be like Rev Paul Bailey. It was refreshing to read his well thought through views about why he believes the Bible supports same-sex relationships/marriage. I have known of Christians with homosexual leanings, who have left the Church because they experienced little compassion and understanding when they shared details of their struggles, neither did they receive the spiritual support they felt they needed. Through being very public with his views, Rev Bailey has made the homosexual community recognise that there is a place for them in the Church, and that they have freedom to love whosoever they want – without fear of condemnation.
