It feels to me like Eugene and I are kind of the same tribe- trying hard to navigate that middle road.
An email conversation ensued and when Eugene blogged about it the comments went wild. 311 at last count. Whoa.
Eugene's the real deal... Check out his response and when you have time (lots of time!), the response to his position (which I share) of "welcoming but not affirming" (also the title of a book on the issue by Stan Grenz)
UPDATE: Probably even more important, check out Eugene's updates and thoughts on the Christians being held hostage right now in Afghanistan...
