When I was on Fox News Radio with Alan Colmes, he asked me if I thought homosexuals were actively recruiting people to become gay. Of course, that's a ridiculous assertion, and I told him, "Absolutely not." But that doesn't mean there's not plenty of recruiting going on in the gay activist camp-and it's happening through a so-called Bible-based, Christian nonprofit.
Indeed, the Reformation Project seeks to reform church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity. Recently the group held its first leadership conference for 50 straight, gay, bisexual and transgender Christians who are committed to reform. The
group actually held a "Bible boot camp" at the United Methodist Church in Kansas City, Kan., to "equip them with the tools and training they need to go back to their communities and make lasting changes to beliefs and interpretations that marginalize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people."
And get this: Now that those people have graduated from the boot camp, the Reformation Project has vowed continual personal, financial and infrastructural support for months and even years following to get the job done. The project's founder, 23-year-old Matthew Vines, has made it his personal mission to ensure his new recruits-even those with the
"biggest and most daunting goals"-can overcome.

The Bible is not anti-gay," Vines asserts on his website. "It never addresses the issues of same-sex orientation or loving same-sex relationships, and the few verses that some cite to oppose those relationships have nothing to do with LGBT people. read more
