Is God anti-gay?

It's the hot topic of the moment. Christians, the church and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality. And there is growing hostility towards those who hold a different view. So is God homophobic? And what do we say, and how do we relate to to both Christians and non Christians who experience same-sex attraction.

Sam Allberry who serves on the staff of St. Mary's, Maidenhead, has written as excellent book entitled "Is God anti-gay". He wrote it "to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures, and offer(s) a positive and liberating way forward through the debate."

What makes this book especially interesting is that Sam speaks as someone who has wrestled with same-sex attraction himself and so writes the book from that perspective.
