After wrapping up the Flip Side Book Club's reading of Spiritual Friendship, Noah interviews author Wes Hill on the book's subject of providing a path of love for celibate gay Christians. A path that still follows the Bible's command for sex to be within the marriage of a man and a woman. The interview talks through the different labels of "same sex attracted," "gay Christian," and "gay celibate Christian," the theological question of original sin as it relates to same sex attraction, but is primarily focused on helping celibate gay / same sex attracted Christians have hope and in helping the Church create community for them.
