Last night I was on the internet trying to find out more about this guy, and came across a group that he is a founding member of, which is called Accepting Evangelicals. Here's some info from the front page of their website:
Accepting EvangelicalsThe thing that strikes me is that these folks want to hold onto the label of evangelical. Most folks who move in this direction find themselves distancing themselves from the evangelical label altogether.
… is a open network of Evangelical Christians who believe the time has come to move towards the acceptance of faithful, loving same-sex partnerships at every level of church life, and the development of a positive Christian ethic for gay and lesbian people.
… is open to everyone who would call themselves Evangelical.
… is a network of people who are increasingly uncomfortable with the hard-line statements which are being issued by some Evangelical groups, and the damage which this is causing, both to the church and the mission of the Gospel.
… is open both to
people who believe that the Bible does not condemn loving,
faithful same-sex relationships which are built on mutual
commitment and self-giving love.
people who, although they do not personally hold this view
are willing to accept the integrity of those who do.
