Fix It Jesus: Pastor Feel Called To Marriage With A Woman But Attracted To Men!
Lord, have mercy NPR has a lively debate going on over there. Some folks are saying this pastor is seriously deluding himself in the name of his faith. And by doing so, he is in essence, rejecting the truth.
Allan Edwards is the pastor of the Kiski Valley Presbyterian Church in western Pennsylvania, a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. He's attracted to men, but considers acting on that attraction a sin. Accord to his faith, Edwards has chosen not to act on his desires.
"I think we all have parts of our desires that we choose not to act on, right?" he says. "So for me, it's not just that the religion was important to me, but communion with a God who loves me, who accepts me right where I am."Where he is now is married. He and his wife, Leanne Edwards, are joyfully expecting a baby in July.
