Tony Jones, author of the book The New Christianity Christians and a leading theologian in the Emergent Church is out of the closet now concerning his views that unrepentant practicing homosexuals can become Christians, which Apprising Ministries first pointed out in Tony Jones and the Emergent Church: “Christian” Gay is A-Ok.
We took a lot of heat for bringing it out but yesterday in Same Sex Marriage Blogalogue: How I Went from There to Here Jones has removed all doubt as to his position, and that which he feels the Body of Christ itself should take, regarding those who are unrepentantly practicing the sin of homosexuality:
