Just testing the waters… A few people have emailed me suggesting a short book or pamphlet on Religious tolerance and fair treatment of homosexuals, based off of a few of my blog posts. It would be the kind of thing that churches could put in their libraries or that Christian gays could give to family members/church fellows to help foster understanding.
This would differ from other things available because the main thrust wouldn’t be disillusioning people of the idea that homosexual acts are inherently sinful, but rather looking PAST the question of sin and seeing homosexuals as people whom God loves and wants to keep, regardless of their sexuality. I personally think that such a work could be helpful because it could transcend the doctrinal divide.
My (three part) question would be: Would you buy such a book, and do you honestly believe that churches or ministry teams would be interested in such a thing (particularly if it came with a reading/study guide that would make it suitable for small group teaching)?
Please answer this question fairly, as if I decide to go this route I will be depending on the generosity of strangers to recoup the personal costs involved.
