What I wish I had said

So, I was interviewed on KUER yesterday. Turns out I’m not good at live radio. I’ve been editing in my head all day, so this could be a really long post, but I’m just going to take another shot at one question I really botched. (That is, one that I remember–I can’t bear to listen to it to clean up all my answers!)

A caller asked how, since the doctrine of many religions* forbids homosexual relationships, adherents of those churches could maintain belief in their churches and also be welcoming of gay people. This is really two questions, I think–one practical or pastoral, and one theological, but the answers are related.

(*I answer from a Christian and Mormon perspective because, well, that’s the one I’ve got, but it seems to me that similar ideas might work in many traditions.)
