Rachel Gilson, whom Hartley quoted in his above tweet, is a campus staff director for Cru in Boston. What Gilson said, that the Bible does not call us to be straight, is demonstrably false. Romans 1 clearly refers to homosexuality as “vile affections” and “dishonorable passions.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) is an organization that touts itself as an interdenominational Christian ministry that is primarily found on university campuses around the world. Now a global parachurch mission outfit, Cru is a staple of youth and college group partnerships with over 25,000 missionaries in nearly 200 countries. In short, Cru is an influential voice among evangelical students.
For the last several years, evangelicalism has been promoting the unbiblical notion that you can be both gay and Christian. The movement, largely influenced by pro-gay parachurch organizations such as Living Out and Revoice, has gained inroads into churches at an alarming rate. The notion that one can identify as homosexual while continuing to dress and act like a homosexual is acceptable so long as one doesn’t actively engage in sexual activity is biblically preposterous. Yet, this is the crux of the movement.
