Wow, an article in Christianity Today in 1969 supporting the repeal of sodomy laws, and a press conference called by clergy in San Fransisco in 1965 to protest police harassment of gays and lesbians. Those two things really re-paint the whole 2,000-year Christian history of religiously-motivated persecution of the sexually-unorthodox, not.
This campaign to portray fundamentalism and bigotry as recent developments which have nothing to do with the history of Christianity, a campaign filling up Huffington Post's Religion section lately, is a blatant lie. Before Christianity, in most parts of the Roman Empire, homosexuality was accepted, period. Any real history of the relationship between Christianity and gay rights needs to start with that little fact, embarrassing as it is for present-day liberal Christians.
