Can gay be Godly?

In December, Michael Vasey's long-awaited book on homosexual morality was published to a storm of protest. Here Dr. David Wright of Edinburgh University reviews the issues and the book.

What Michael Vasey seeks is a 'reconciliation' between the church, especially the evangelical church, and gay people. This would involve on the church's side a full acceptance of the 'gay public identity' within its fold. Nothing is said about what it might entail for gay men and women. Vasey's ideal is that the church should ensure that relationships are conducted in a responsible, respectful and affirming environment and leave the details of sexual practice to be worked out by those involved, without outside interference.
