God vs. Gay? The Religious Case for Equality | Detroit JCC
at JCC of Detroit
6600 W. Maple Road
West Bloomfield, MI
The myth that the Bible forbids homosexuality — the myth of ‚ÄúGod versus¬†Gay‚ÄĚ — 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.
This event will include a conversation with Michaelson about God vs. Gay and an opportunity to ask questions and share views on this highly contentious and important debate.
