Is Proud Homosexuality Compatible with the Bible?

Crystal Lake residents have an excellent opportunity to learn the arguments against "gay theology" from one of the world's foremost authority on the Bible and homosexuality, Robert Gagnon.

Mr. Gagnon is giving several speeches on Sunday and Monday as part of Illinois Family Institute's "Love & Truth" campaign responding to the "Gay Games," which are coming to Chicago July 15-22. (Crystal Lake was injected into the "Gay Games" controversy when it was chosen as a sporting venue for the rowing event at the "Games.")

The event is being held on Monday evening, July 17, beginning at 6:30 PM at the Crystal Lake Public Library. The Crystal Lake Public Library is located at 126 Paddock Street.

Robert Gagnon, Associate Professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and author of "The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics," will be speaking on the question, "Is proud homosexuality compatible with Christianity?" After Professor Gagnon's presentation, there will be plenty of time for Questions & Answers.
