“This past week, a viral video leaked out of Andy Stanley’s 2022 DRIVE Conference in which Andy Stanley praised the superior faith of “gay Christians” stating that they had more faith to keep returning to a place that has historically “mistreated” homosexuals and might not “accept” them.”
(Ray Fava – Evangelical Dark Web) Andy Stanley achieved a reputation and perhaps pioneered the stereotype of a prominent megachurch pastor who avoids preaching about hot button issues. So, unsurprisingly there does not appear to be a go-to resource on Andy Stanley’s views, and his father, Charles Stanley, is not an indication of Andy’s theology on any given issue. So where does Andy Stanley stand on an issue he seldom talks about?
The main question is whether Andy Stanley is Side A or Side B. Neither position is orthodox. Side A is shorthand for “acceptance” but really means antinomian. Side B theology distinguishes between homosexual acts and desires, believing only the former is sinful. Both camps believe in sexual orientation and that “gay Christian” is an acceptable identity, although there is some debate in Side B about that.
