well, kssandra...just give this guy a listen. Finding a "cure" for gayness is like seeking a cure for the "human condition." We are sinful, fallen, broken, messy creatures. On our own,we are hopeless failures. But that is the message of the Gospel. Jesus came to free us from our slavery to our own broken messiness. The "cure" is only through Jesus. Jesus transforms us. Not to a new sexual identity, but a new identity in Jesus. May you come to know the one who Loves you and made you.

If the Bible is “a radically pro-slavery document” (Dan Savage), how is it that Christians who successfully fought for the abolition of slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries based their opposition to slavery on that very same Bible? The answer is simple: The Bible is actually not “a radically pro-slavery document.”

According to Savage (following atheist Sam Harris), “the Bible got the easiest moral question that humanity has ever faced wrong. Slavery! What’re the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? 100% percent.”

To be candid, it’s easy to see where Savage and Harris are...
