NPR: A Pastor Attracted To Men & Married To A Woman

The graphic says "National Public Radio Weekend Edition Sunday brings listeners an unexpected side of the news by talking with someone personally affected by the stories making headlines."

On NPR’s  Weekend Edition Sunday they talk with a pastor who is attracted to men, and is married to a woman.
“My expectation was, if I started talking to other guys about this, I’m going to get ostracized and lambasted,” Allan says. “I actually had the exact opposite experience. ... I actually was received with a lot of love, grace, charity: some confusion, but openness to dialogue.” 
Allan considered following a Christian denomination that accepts gay relationships, but his interpretation of the Bible wouldn’t allow it, he says. 
“I studied different methods of reading the Scripture and it all came down to this: Jesus accepts the rest of the Scripture as divined from God,” he says. “So if Jesus is who he says he is, then we kind of have to believe what he believes.”
God bless them.
