2. Homosexuality & Christianity | Beals-Saffold-Mayes Debate


A public debate on the morality question of Homosexuality was held April 8-9, 1994 on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. George Beals of the churches of Christ affirmed - The Bible teaches all homosexual behavior is immoral (sinful). Thom Saffold of the American Baptist Churches affirmed – The Bible condemns sexual acts between people of the same gender, but not what we in our age consider to be homosexuality. Fran Mayes of the American Baptist Churches affirmed - The Bible plus modern science plus the experience of the Christian community lead us to the conclusion that some gay and lesbian relationships are moral, and, therefore, should be affirmed.
