Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

Kim Fabricius on Same-Relationships and the Church

For those who think I am blogging too slowly on my series on GLBT folks, you’re right. I keep getting distracted by working to end the Iraq war and related peace & justice matters. Also, I am looking for some old notes I took on the Sodom story before I blog on that.

So, for those who cannot wait and want to see (either to criticize, amen, or contemplate thoughtfully) a full case for a position like mine, see Kim Fabricius’ “12 Propositions on Same-Sex Relationships and the Church.” Kim is a fine theologian, a Barthian from the U.S. now living and teaching in Wales. He is a member of the United Reformed Church (roughly similar to the United Church of Christ here in the States), but is a fellow pacifist and has many other good qualities. My reasoning and conclusions are not 100% the same as his, but there is enough similarity (over 90%), that I unhesitatingly recommend his 12 point outline as a good framework.

Provocative, challenging stuff as usual. Thanks, Kim.

  1. Marshall, you have just replaced Daniel Randle and Looney as the most annoying idiot who comments on my blog.

  2. Calling you annoying is not disrespectful. And if you call your comments respectful, I’d hate to see what you say to people when you are trying to be rude.
