Christian groups hoping to see a more LGBT-welcoming and -affirming Church met in St. Louis last week. A Christian talk-show host, however, says the “horrendous apostasy” at the core of Revoice’s rhetoric must be confronted.
The theme of last week’s conference was “supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex-attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality.”
It’s a doctrine that mandates that any sexual expression outside a monogamous, man/woman marriage is sin.
Christian radio talk-show host Janet Mefferd said that when compared with the stated theme, what actually happened there made the conference almost nonsensical.
“They talk about celibacy and the historic Christian tradition, but then you look at their [conference] website and everything was about ‘queer culture’ and ‘intersectionality’ and all these liberal progressive things – and it just got weirder and weirder,” she said on her program yesterday.
In his column on Monday, Dr. Michael L. Brown took issue with one of the workshops offered in Revoice titled “Redeeming Queer Culture: An Adventure” – the description for which referred to “the virtues of queer culture” and asked “what queer treasure, honor, and glory will be brought into the New Jerusalem at the end of time?”
Brown’s response? “There will be plenty of people redeemed out of queer culture who will enter the heavenly city, but nothing ‘queer’ will enter there, for sure. And there’s no way a follower of Jesus should identify as ‘queer.’ That is who some of us once were,” he wrote.
