NASHVILLE – An American Baptist College is defending its invitation to an openly-lesbian United Church of Christ Minister, asserting that Christians are making an “idol” of the Bible.

“It’s sad that people use religion and idolatry of the Bible to demoralize same-gender-loving people,” American Baptist College President Forrest Harris told the Tennessean on Wednesday.

The publication then asked that he clarify his use of the phrase “idolatry of the Bible.”
“When people say [the Bible] is synonymous with God and the truth,” Harris responded. “We can’t be guided and dictated by a first-century world view.”  ChristianNews Network

  1. I have to agree with this comment:

    "For a Baptist college president to invite a lesbian bishop legally married to a woman, to be a guest speaker and worship leader on a Baptist college campus is irresponsible, scandalous, non-biblical, and certainly displeasing to God," the news release said.

  2. As previously noted, there is NO fear of God in the pulpit, the government, in academia and seemingly in the hearts of millions of "christians."
