 What does love look in today’s public square? (Photo by Rhododendrites) Just over one month has passed since the atrocity in Orlando. In those four weeks, many have insisted that the Christian community needs to accept and embrace, rather than judge and condemn, the LGBT lifestyle.

This is post 5 of 10 in the series “Romans 1” In a famous quote, G.K.
