The last few years have seen rapid progress toward equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in all aspects of American society. Often, though, this change has been seen in negative terms, pitting religion against civil rights, or God versus Gay. In his bestselling book God vs. Gay? The Religious Case for Equality?, however, writer & activist Jay Michaelson has argued that not only should religious people support LGBT equality because of religion and not despite it, but that this public debate is an opportunity for spiritual growth for all of us, regardless of our sexual identity, gender identity, or religious (or not!) identity. Come here Jay talk about the spirituality of introspection, dialogue, and eros in this fascinating lecture and conversation.
