TLC will air its controversial show "My Husband's Not Gay" on Sunday despite widespread criticism and calls for the channel not to.
"TLC has long shared compelling stories about real people and different ways of life, without judgment," TLC said in a statement. "The individuals featured in this one-hour special reveal the decisions they have made, and speak only for themselves."
The channel issued the statement in response to intense criticism from GLAAD, a gay Christian who started a campaign on Change.org that has received over 100,000 supporters, and the Family Research Council. Members of the public have expressed their views about the show, which features three Mormon couples who "navigate unconventional relationships" as well as one single man who goes on a date and has to "decide whether or not to reveal his big secret," according to TLC. more >>
Pastor and Crazy Love author Francis Chan answered the question of what makes a boyfriend ready for marriage on John Piper's Ask Pastor John podcast by recalling a time when his older daughter brought a guy home.
He recounted, "My daughter did bring home a guy a few months ago from college and some of my friends asked her, they said 'hey how serious are you with him' and they told me her answer was so weird. They said her answer was 'I just want to hang out with him long enough to see if God answers his prayers.' That's a weird answer but in her mind that was her gauge."
The California preacher went on to describe how in his home, answered prayer is the measure of strong relationship with God. more >>

A Pennsylvania pastor who struggles with same-sex attraction has come forward to talk about his marriage to his longtime friend and wife who says their challenges are no different that every other married couple.
Allan Edwards, a pastor at Kiski Valley Presbyterian Church in Leechburg, married his wife, Leanne, who he met at a Christian summer camp. The couple is now expecting a baby in July, and despite having feelings for men, Edwards insists that he's happily married.
"It was a pretty immediate realization that it [his attraction to the same sex] was in conflict with my faith," Edwards told NPR in a report that was broadcast on Sunday. "I didn't know anyone else who experienced same-sex attractions, so I didn't talk about it much at all." However, he did find acceptance at one of the places he least expected it — a small, Christian liberal arts college. more >>
