Complex issues in 'gay cake' furore

Published 25/05/2015

As a born-again Christian, I don't know what to think about the "gay cake", because I can see all the sides and the deep, complex human issues behind each voice in the argument.

Much pain has been inflicted on the LGBT community by religious voices, as if gay sex was the only sin God was concerned with. There is much hypocrisy in the Church. And then, on the other side, you have convictions about truth based on biblical passages and the call to, graciously, uphold God's word.

One thing I am absolutely 100% certain about is this: if Jesus had been there he would have said something and done something so unexpected, so unpredictable and so astounding, that is all anyone would be talking about right now.
