The myth that the Bible forbids homosexuality — the myth of “God versus Gay” — is behind the most divisive and painful conflicts of our time. In his new book God vs. Gay? The Religious Case for Equality, scholar and activist Jay Michaelson shows that not only does the Bible not prohibit same-sex intimacy, it honors the values of love, justice, diversity, and compassion that equality for sexual minorities brings about. Michaelson says that religious people should support equality for gays and lesbians not despite their religion — but because of it.
Jay’s reading at 7:30pm is free and all are welcome. His book, God vs. Gay will be available for purchase.
A special “Conversation with Jay” reception at 6:30 pm has been arranged for a contribution of $50. Please call the office at 954-564-9232, to make your reservation.
