Matthew Vines Says Being Gay Is Not a Sin
Note from GLAADRoss Murray, Director of News and Faith Initiatives at GLAAD
Matthew Vines is a 22-year-old gay Christian who believes being gay is not a sin. He came to that conclusion after two years of studying Scripture and the works of dozens of biblical scholars. The Harvard University student, currently on leave of absence, is now trying to win over fellow believers not just with an emotional testimony but with what he is presenting as biblically solid arguments. "There is no contradiction between being Christian and being gay," he told BBC.
