A Christian Think Tank - "Critically examine everything. Hold on to the good." (Paul, I Thessalonians 5:21)
This website comes highly recommended by my Bible Study pastor as one to go to when you hear something about Scripture that seems to contradict traditional Christianity. While it has nothing about homosexuality, it is an excellent resource for general Bible knowledge.

GodMadeMeGay.com - is the wonderful website of my dear friend Rev. Bruce Lowe, whose articles "A Letter to Louise - A Biblical Affirmation of Homosexuality" and "Six Points" appear on this website.
Sadly, Bruce passed away in 2014, shortly after his dear wife, Anna.
Bruce was a graduate of Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas (1936) and of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas (1946). He married Anna Marie in 1944; they had two sons and two grandsons.Â His ministry included the chaplaincy during World War II, pastorates in Louisiana, and teaching Bible at Louisiana College, Pineville.Â He left the ministry in 1966 and worked until retirement in the Office for Civil Rights of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Bruce was a strong supporter of our GLBT community and endeavoured to educate with the truth of the Scriptures regarding homosexuality.
Bruce's website also offers a plethora of Resources.
Hope Remains -Â If you are a Christian and want to know what scripture really says about homosexuality, this site is for you.
If you are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, or questioning your sexuality, and you fear that God will reject you, condemn you to hell, or even hate you, and you are looking for hope, this site is for you.
We are not going to beat anyone with verses of scripture. We understand that your sexuality is primarily about who you are, not what you do, and that it is not something you chose.
We are not going to judge you, and we are not going to try to change anything about you, except perhaps the way you see yourself and how you fit into God's plans and His Kingdom.
What weÂ areÂ going to do is visit every one of the passages of scripture that you thought condemned you, look at them in the Hebrew and Greek (the original languages), and find out for ourselves what God thinks, without interference from human opinions, historical prejudice, judgmental people and biased medieval (and modern) Bible translators.
It is our intent in the following pages to demonstrate that scripture in the original languages never condemned homosexuality, and same-sex marriage, often thought to be a "new" concept, existed and was accepted back then. We also hope to make it clear that Transgender persons transitioning to the desired sex are NOT sinning.
We hope that you will find new hope and a firm understanding that Jesus loves you far more than you have been led to believe.
Note: Where we have used Hebrew and Greek words, we have also transliterated the words into our alphabet, attempting to approximate the MODERN pronunciations of the words. (No one is alive who can tell us how biblical Hebrew and Koine Greek were pronounced, so it makes more sense to use the modern pronunciations of both languages.)
Inclusive Orthodoxy - approaches the problem that the more inclusive an organization or denomination becomes, the further it strays from the Apostolic faith and core orthodox Christian teaching.
Justin Cannon, the founder of this website, is perhaps the most gifted young man of our LGBT community to come along in many years. Still in his early 20's and pursuing his future within the priesthood, Justin has already accomplished much, including the publication of his booklet The Bible, Christianity, & Homosexuality, the design and development of several websites, and the recognition by Out Magazine as one of the Top 100 most influential gay people of 2006.
I am in full agreement with Justin's statements and highly recommend this website to all.
Jesus in Love - offers resources to help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people build a deep, living relationship with God through Christ. It is an online oasis for all who want to integrate sexuality and Christian spirituality. We affirm lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and let LGBT experiences illuminate Bible texts and church life. We are reclaiming and building on the tradition of God as Lover.Â
We welcome art, music, poetry and the beauty of nature as a means to spiritual growth. While valuing other faiths, we seek direct contact with Jesus Christ.

Our staff provide clergy, congregations, and denominational bodies with technical assistance on addressing sexuality and reproductive issues, and assist sexual and reproductive health (SRH) organizations on addressing religious issues and developing outreach to faith communities.
The primary objectives of the Religious Institute include:

* Building the capacity of religious institutions and clergy to offer sexuality education within the context of their own faith traditions
* Helping congregations become sexually healthy faith communities
* Educating the public and policymakers about a progressive religious vision
of sexual morality, justice, and healing.
Shaw Ministries - is dedicated to presenting spiritual truths that reveal the inclusive, empowering love of God exhibited through the New Covenant established by Jesus Christ.
