Ep. 2.5 - A Former Lesbian Professor's Journey to Faith
As a tenured professor at Syracuse University who identified as a lesbian, Dr. Rosaria Butterfield had no desire to become part of the heterosexist, patriarchal culture that she perceived to be the identity of Christianity. Her thinking was challenged by the letter of a local pastor who inquired about her basic presuppositions and asked her questions no one had ever asked her before. What began as an academic exercise to find fault with the Scripture and expose the darker side of Christianity ended with answers and a changed life that resonates in today's culture. After Dr. Butterfield’s testimony, FRC’s Director of Christian Ethics and Biblical Worldview David Closson joins Lecture Me! to further discuss her powerful account and how Scripture can transform people’s lives in surprising ways.
