Why celibate LGBTQ Christians stir controversy on right and left alike

In other words, where many conservative Christian leaders denounce LGBTQ identity, many are unwilling to do the relational work of walking alongside same-sex-attracted Christians as they attempt a very difficult thing: lifelong celibacy. The Nashville Statement offered a strong “no” to gay identity and behavior, but didn’t offer a positive vision and vocation, a “yes,” to those Christians beyond the avoidance of certain behavior and labels.

In this way, Revoice puts flesh and blood on what can come across as cold doctrine. It offers a modest “yes” to the universal human need for friendship, authenticity and hope.
