Gay scholar issues Bible challenge
Gay scholar and theologian Daniel Helminiak has “thrown down the gauntlet” to challenge Biblical literalists. His message is clear: Deal with the historical facts or abandon the anti-gay agenda. Helminiak is a professor at the University of West Georgia and the author of many books, including the bestseller “What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality. Visit his website, visionsofdaniel.net, to read his eloquent summary of the historical evidence behind the Bible passages that are often misused to condemn homosexuality. New material on the site also describes his frustrating recent conflicts with “so-called Christians” who oppose his pro-GLBT interpretations.
