Program #1,239

Hosted this week by Greg Gordon and produced by Lucia Chappelle

In the late 1990s, one courageous Methodist pastor took up the cause of LGBT equality. His mission, which included a number of banned same-gender commitment ceremonies, cost him his ordination, but his ministry to the disenfranchised has continued. This week, the REVEREND JIMMY CREECH talks about how receiving ADAM'S GIFT -- the title of his recently released memoir -- changed the course of his life forever. He recounts his comprehensive study of Biblical texts and church history, which led him to the conclusion that the condemnation of LGBT people is not God's doing, but the result of a sex-negative church hierarchy.
