CNN carries evangelical "famiy acceptance" story; horrific incident in the Bronx, NY

On a Sunday morning following a week where the media, especially CNN’s AC360, carried many stories and debates on anti-gay bullying, CNN covered the story of an evangelical family, the Ellis family, that had to come to terms with its son’s homosexuality when Adam announced it at 16 in 1997. The website is called “Family Acceptance” and is here. This particular family apparently did worry about what “other people think”.

The website says, "There are seven deadly sins in the Bible: Pride, Lust, Gluttony, Anger, Sloth, Envy, and Greed. Homosexuality is not among them. Why not? "

The media has covered a horrific anti-gay gang attack in the Bronx in NYC. The AP story is by Verna Dobnik and David B. Crauso, link here. Eight of the nine perpetrators are in custody.

Hi John,

We just posted an article, “50 Very Insightful Blog Posts on GLBTQ Spirituality”( ) . I thought I'd bring it to your attention in case you think your readers would find it interesting.

Either way, thanks for your time!
