A few days ago I sent out an email to my blog subscribers asking them to send me their top questions about sexuality and the Christian faith. I've picked out the 7 most common questions I received and I'm going to answer one per day over the next 7 days. One of the hopes I had in attempting this blog series was that the discussion could go beyond the topic of homosexuality and encompasses the whole sphere of sexuality. And I'm happy to say that based on the questions I received, it will.

An official at the American Baptist College, a Christian college in Nashville, Tennessee, defended the school's decision Tuesday to invite a married lesbian bishop to lecture students during the institution's 58th Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series this month declaring that there's nothing unchristian about it, despite protest from a group of pastors.
Richard E. Jackson, vice president for administration, finance and legal affairs at American Baptist College, told The Christian Post in an interview Tuesday that most of the reactions he's received about the pending visit of Bishop Yvette Flunder of the City of Refuge United Church of Christ has been one of surprise.

Conservative media personality Glenn Beck declared renowned neurosurgeon and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson's presidential career over and branded him a "lunatic" last week for calling homosexuality "absolutely" a choice because of prison sex.

Reacting to Carson's comments, on his radio show Friday, Beck called them "ridiculous". more >>
A chaplain who once ministered to Navy SEALs could be thrown out of the military after he was accused of failing "to show tolerance and respect" in private counseling sessions in regards to issues pertaining to faith, marriage and sexuality, specifically homosexuality and pre-marital sex, according to documents obtained exclusively by Fox News.
Lt. Commander Wes Modder, who is endorsed by the Assemblies of God, has also been accused of being unable to "function in the diverse and pluralistic environment" of the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.
"On multiple occasions he discriminated against students who were of different faiths and backgrounds," the Chaplain's commanding Officer Capt. Jon R. Fahs wrote in a memorandum obtained by Fox News. more >>
The largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States is only seven votes away from having enough regional bodies favor changing its official definition of marriage to include homosexual unions.
At last year's general assembly, Presbyterian Church (USA) approved an amendment changing their Book of Order's definition of marriage from being between "a man and a woman" to "two people, traditionally a man and a woman."
The American Baptist College, a Christian college in Nashville, Tennessee, is under fire from a group of pastors for inviting a married lesbian bishop to speak at the institution's 58th Garnett-Nabrit Lecture Series this month.
Bishop Yvette Flunder of the City of Refuge United Church of Christ, who's married to her same-sex partner Shirley Miller, is featured as one of the main speakers set to make an address during the lecture series on March 18, according to a schedule of events published by the college.
