It was good to hear a Christian leader from a traditional church background affirm same-sex marriages in the last edition of Keep The Faith magazine. As a gay Christian who attends a Pentecostal church, I welcomed Steve Chalke’s comments. I have never spoken to anyone at my church about my sexual orientation, because I’m fearful of how they will respond to me. I love God, but I love men also and, instead of hearing messages that are condemning the gay lifestyle, I would love to hear messages that affirm my sexuality, and give me hope that I could find love with someone of the same sex. Steve Chalke has given me that hope. I hope more church leaders have the guts to speak out like Steve Chalke has done.
