We Interrupt This Narrative...

I realized that I forgot to post a link to an interesting debate at Pepperdine concerning the Christian response to LGBTQ issues. Ron Belgau and Justin Lee present the two different "sides" of the debate from a Christian perspective -- Ron presenting the traditional view that marriage and sex are designed to be between a man and a woman, and Justin arguing that there is room within Christianity for gay relationships. What's really nice about it is that the dialogue is deeply respectful, a disagreement between two men who know and like each other, who are both committed Christians, and who both actually have same-sex attractions, which means that it's an engaging and intelligent discussion rather than political mud-slinging. Recommended. The next part of my story should hopefully be up tomorrow. My husband, who is my straight-eye for the queer-gal go-to guy -- the one who tries to keep me from going off the deep-end in fits of Socratic madness that will inevitably leave straight readers shaking their heads in confusion and consternation -- says that my most recent draft is "much improved" but still needs some line editing to make it relatable...
