Grace Church to Host Gene Robinson Documentary Screening

Sundance film focusing on gay bishop will screen next week.

The following was submitted by the Rev. Noah Evans on behalf of Grace Church:

Grace Episcopal Church in Medford will host a free screening of the 2012
Sundance Award winning documentary Love Free or Die.

Love Free or Die is about a man whose two defining passions are in
direct conflict: his love for God and for his partner Mark. Gene
Robinson is the first openly gay person to become a bishop in the
historic traditions of Christendom.

His consecration in 2003, to which he wore a bullet-proof vest, caused an international stir, and he has lived with death threats every day since. Love Free or Die follows Robinson from small-town churches in the New Hampshire North Country to Washington’s Lincoln Memorial to London’s Lambeth Palace, as he
calls for all to stand for equality – inspiring bishops, priests and ordinary folk to come out from the shadows and change history.  For more information about the movie visit: http://www.lovefreeordiemovie.com.

At the heart of the so-called “Gay Gospel”, or “Gay Theology”, is the claim that the Bible does not condemn homosexual acts that occur within the context of loving, committed, enduring homosexual relationships. This, despite the fact that the Bible does appear to condemn all homosexual acts and that the Christian church has steadfastly held this position since Jesus Christ established His church almost 2,000 years ago. In effect, what gay theology is asking, rhetorically, is, “Did God really say that sex within the context of loving, committed, long-term homosexual relationships is wrong?” If the phrase “Did God really say…” sounds familiar to you, it is probably because that is exactly what Satan said to Eve in the Garden of Eden when he was trying to get her to commit the first sin: “Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” (Genesis 3:1). And that is exactly what is happening in the Christian church today, in the form of gay theology. Satan is using gay theology to get Christians who are homosexual to continue to practice homosexuality and feel good about it, rather than repent of it.
