If the mainstream media is talking about a religious book, you can bet it’s either about “Jesus’ wife” or how Mary wasn’t a virgin or something else entirely off base from traditional Christianity. Well a new book which claims the Bible actually supports homosexuality is getting heavy press from the liberal media. Of course because it’s praising progressive outlier Christianity,it’s exactly the kind of religion the media want to promote as “mainstream.”

Over the past few weeks the media has been gushing over 24-year-old Matthew Vines’ “God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.” The book has prompted the media to question endlessly, will Christians finally accept homosexuality into the church? The Daily Beast’s Jay Michaelson pondered, “The marriage equality fight is all but won. Will the future of marriage be boring as hell, or a Bible-thumper’s idea of Sodom and Gomorrah?”
