Thank you for the program. I believe more attention needs to be given to this issue. There is a widespread perception among most Christians that homosexuality is a sin. But I believe that this perception is changing as Christians study the Bible.I am a retired Presbyterian minister. I would describe myself as an evangelical Christian, not a fundamentalist. I have studied the Bible in depth in Hebrew and Greek on this issue and have concluded that the Bible does not teach that homosexuality is a sin. A very helpful book for me is Jesus, The Bible , and Homosexuality by Jack Rogers. He is a Christian leader who explores the Bible in some depth. My impression from Ms. Patterson was that one cannot be a thoughtful Christian and believe that homosexuality is not a sin. I argue that one may be a thoughtful Christian who affirms the authority of the Bible and not condemn homosexuals. I urge you to interview Jack Rogers on your program.
