Christian band “Jars of Clay” frontman comes out as ally of LGBT
Some Christians use everything but the bible to make their points.
Check it out:
Dan Haseltine is the lead singer of the popular Christian folk rock band, Jars of Clay. He’s a songwriter, author, founder and board member of the non-profit Blood:Water Mission and, now, an ally to the LGBT community. Since Tuesday, he’s been tweeting about marriage equality, loving LGBT people, and his Christian beliefs as support for being an ally.
The frontman of one of the most popular contemporary Christian bands, Dan’s ongoing Twitter convo is not only challenging the misconception that religious communities are necessarily in opposition with the LGBT community; addiitonally, it challenges folks from those communities to engage in dialogue, to grow in understanding, and to think critically and intentionally about fostering love and equality. As Jars of Clay’s music is often heard in Christian spaces as well as youth-oriented spaces, Dan’s tweets may have a resounding impact, sparking conversations where they do not usually occur.
I just don't see a negative effect to allowing gay marriage. No societal breakdown, no war on traditional marriage. ?? Anyone?
