Despite attempts by some modern-day, right-wing Christian groups to crush LGBT rights, there appears to be some evidence that a few Biblical characters were in same-sex relationships. That's according to the Rev. Nathan Dannison, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and the Disciples of Christ.
He'll be leading a two-hour seminar on Saturday, Nov. 5th on same-gender relationships in the Hebrew Bible and the Christian New Testament. The free lecture will be held at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper) from 1 to 3 p.m.
Dannison holds a master's degree in divinity from the Chicago Theological Seminary and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in religious studies at Vanderbilt University.
