Jeff Maples of Pulpit & Pen has the story:
Jen Hatmaker has created a god of her own delusions. In a recent article on RNS, Hatmaker was interviewed by Jonathan Merritt and asked several questions regarding her politics and faith. It became abundantly clear that she doesn’t know the God that reveals Himself through the Scriptures.
One of the questions asked of her was, “Politically-speaking, do you support gay marriage?”
From a civil rights and civil liberties side and from just a human being side, any two adults have the right to choose who they want to love. And they should be afforded the same legal protections as any of us. I would never wish anything less for my gay friends.
From a spiritual perspective, since gay marriage is legal in all 50 states, our communities have plenty of gay couples who, just like the rest of us, need marriage support and parenting help and Christian community. They are either going to find those resources in the church or they are not.
Not only are these our neighbors and friends, but they are brothers and sisters in Christ. They are adopted into the same family as the rest of us, and the church hasn’t treated the LGBT community like family. We have to do better.
