The christian and homosexuality: further notes toward an evangelical sexual ethic


It was an awkward conversation when it started, but I wasn’t prepared for the turn it took.

A new friend and I were sitting on the patio of the cafeteria at our conservative evangelical university, enjoying our lunch and debriefing our philosophy class. We eventually found ourselves talking about what the conversation often turns to among college men: women. We discussed past relationships and future prospects, but the conversation proceeded in fits and starts. It was clear my new friend wasn’t very interested, and I wasn’t about to pry.
