    "In the American South, homosexuality is often viewed as a spiritual issue. But for me, it's always just been a physiological one—like sneezing or sweating or laughing."

    Episode 2 • The Christ-Haunted South

    "Being a preacher’s kid in a small town is a low form of southern royalty, and I was aware of this at an early age. As a kid I could basically wander the halls of our big old church at will, anytime, without interference. No one questioned a Trapp boy—not the organ player, or my Sunday School teachers, or the janitor...especially not the janitor."

    "I was small and gangly—like a little spider monkey amongst gorillas—so I couldn't do much damage. But I knew one surefire way to get the big guys' attention: pinching. I'd hang on the fringes and then swoop in like a tiny crab from hell..."

Blue Babies Pink

Wonderful

Growing up evangelical, I had certain opinions that were not based on any sort of experience, but rather what I had been told.

This podcast is perfect for pointing people in the direction of seeing the issue from a personal perspective.
