Author Jen Hatmaker speaks out for LGBT inclusion


In June of 2015, Ed Stetzer of LifeWay Research told The New York Times, “Well-known evangelicals who have shifted on same-sex marriage, you could fit them all in an S.U.V." But prominent evangelical Christians continue to become publicly affirming of LGBT persons, and serious religion-watchers only expect the trend to continue. Stetzer's S.U.V. is quickly becoming an convoy, and now prominent Christian author Jen Hatmaker appears to be riding along too. In a Facebook post on April 23, the bestselling author of 7 and For the Love told LGBT persons "there is nothing 'wrong with you'" and said she believes it is time to offer LGBT persons full inclusion into the Christian community.
