Utah pastors to debate question: Can you be a Christian and gay? | The Salt Lake Tribune

Gay marriage may be the most divisive issue among today’s Christians, pitting those who view it as sinful and contrary to God’s laws against those who argue same-sex relationships are a normal part of human sexuality that churches should embrace and celebrate.On Tuesday night, two Salt Lake City pastors on opposing sides will debate the question: Can you be Christian and gay?

The Rev. Jason Wallace, pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church, a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Magna, believes the two are antithetical.

The Rev. Curtis Price of First Baptist Church in Salt Lake City interprets scripture differently.

“My position in simple terms is that homosexuality is not a sin and the Bible does not condemn it as sin,” Price says. “The Christian church’s fixation on this issue has been misplaced and is doing irreparable harm to good people and to Christian faith.”
