Matthew and Monte Vine talk with Diane Rehm about the difficulties their family experienced when Matthew told Monte and his mother that he was attracted to other men. Together, the father and son started studying the Bible together, and the results of their study led Matthew to write and publish a book, “God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships”.
The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition. The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity. Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
