Is the Christian music industry liberalizing on gay marriage?

Is the Christian music industry liberalizing on gay marriage? | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it

Does it matter if the lyrics you sing to worship God were written by someone with whom you have deep theological disagreements? 

Christian rock star Vicky Beeching forced her fans to confront this question last week when she told The Independent that she is a lesbian. Her songs are among the most commonly sung in North American churches. But many within her Christian fan base believe gay sex and marriage are sinful.

Beeching has shared harrowing stories of struggling to shirk her sexuality. She even recounts participating in a traumatic exorcism at a Christian youth camp. Nineteen years after the failed attempt to purge the gay-ness from her spirit, Beeching chose to just be open and honest about who she believes she is.
