Yes, I mean that Dallas Observer. It's a weird concept, I know, because nobody thinks of the Dallas Observer as being a bastion of anything remotely religious, much less Christian.
And yet, in the middle of their very snarky and very fun blog, Unfair Park, I found a little column called "Bible Girl."
It's written by what may be the most rare creature on Earth - an evangelical Christian working in the alternative press. If this isn't "in the world but not of the world," then I don't know what is. I read, re-read, and memorized parts of her post on her struggle with homosexuality entitled The Mystery of Sexual Orientation.
My favorite quote:
My “deliverance” from depression and a broken sexual identity did involve choices. I ultimately wanted to obey God more than I wanted to sin.
If you're using an RSS reader, I encourage you to check in on Bible Girl every chance you get. Actually, even if you don't, you should.
