Sofa king tired of anti-gay politics

by Jeremy Hooper

Mitchell-GoldIn a new interview with Out Front Blog, furniture magnate, gay rights activist, and all-around good guy Mitchell Gold drops this interesting little tidbit about a forthcoming article:

In a few weeks there will be an article published in a well known mainstream Christian publication by a well known Evangelical Christian minister and professor of ethics. I can’t disclose much from the article yet but here are a couple of quick quotes:

Crisis [the book Mitchell edited] tells the sad stories of dozens of young people….. How often they have been left broken by their fundamental rejection as human beings—at the hands of Christians, and in the name of the Bible.

Obviously we must extend such basic acceptance, such human and Christian love.

But after reading these stories, it seems to me that Christians have something to request from God, and from the gays and lesbians among us. We need forgiveness.

Hmmm. So to whom is Mitchell referring? And in which publication? Well, he refuses to tell us unless we buy the most expensive armoire in his catalog, which is something we're just not in the market to do at this particular juncture.

Although if we were betting folk, we'd put our money on noted Professor Gonna B. ShunnedByThoseEvangelicalsWhoThinkGaysAreTheOnesWhoNeedToMakeTheApologies. Unfortunately he's the only one the "pro-family" team ever let speak favorably about queer people.
