Gay pastor writes a book about parenting issues. Fills void in pro-Christian, pro-gay, pro-family literature.

Asheville, North Carolina’s Citizen-Times.com spotlights a new book about being a gay parent. Brett Webb-Mitchell, an ordained Presbyterian minister, has written “On Being a Gay Parent: Making a Future Together”. The book deals with parenting issues and religion.

I wrote the book because there was nothing out there that was pro-gay, pro-child, pro-family and pro-Christian,” he said. “The books that dealt with gay parenting and Christianity were not very pro-Christian.”

“It was Psalm 139 that finally convinced me to be who I am,” he said. “You are constructed by God; you are wonderfully made… I am who God made me.”

Webb-Mitchell has taught at Duke Divinity School in Durham, but his current spiritual venture is called School of the Pilgrim, an organization that encourages people to go on pilgrimages to learn more about themselves and their faith.
