LGBT Activist goes to Harvard, Interprets Bible as Approving of Monogamous, Gay Relationships

Matthew Vines, a “queer rights activist,” spoke at Harvard University and interpreted the Bible differently than Christian and Jewish biblical scholars on monogamous, heterosexual relationships. Vines claimed current orthodox Christian interpretations of sexual morality, such as approving monogamous heterosexual relationships, have “done unfathomable harm and destruction to LGBTQ people.”

Three separate LGBT campus organizations invited Vines to speak on the campus, which came several weeks after a Christian student group was placed on probation due to the group’s objection to one of its group leaders being a practicing bisexual woman.

In one part of Vines’ remarks, he said that he is “advocating for the rights of BGLTQ Christians to his family in Kansas” and other groups of Christians.
