Babylon is fallen, is fallen,...Come out of her, my people,
There seem to be some on the Streets of Babylon who get it...Peterson's books may be "pulled"..
"Customers who want to buy a copy of The Message version of the Bible soon may have to purchase it—or any other books by author Eugene Peterson—somewhere other than LifeWay Christian Stores.
LifeWay Christian Resources—the publishing arm of the Southern Baptist Convention—announced
it would discontinue selling any books by Peterson if he confirms a published interview about same-sex relations accurately reflects his views.
In an interview with Religion News Service columnist Jonathan Merritt, Peterson voiced an accepting view of same-sex relationships and said he would be willing to perform a same-sex wedding ceremony.
“I wouldn’t have said this 20 years ago, but now I know a lot of people who are gay and lesbian, and they seem to have as good a spiritual life as I do,” Peterson told Merritt. “I think that kind of debate about lesbians and gays might be over.
“People who approve of it, they’ll probably just go to another church. So, we’re in a transition, and I think it’s a transition for the best, for the good. I don’t think it’s something that you can parade, but it’s not a right or wrong thing as far as I’m concerned.”
When asked if he were in the pastorate today and a gay Christian couple asked him to perform their same-sex wedding ceremony, Peterson said he would do it, according to Merritt’s column."
