Reformed Church author OKs gay marriage

What God Has Joined Together
A professor with long ties to the Reformed Church in America has coauthored a book that makes what he considers a Christian argument for gay marriage.

In What God Has Joined Together? A Christian Case for Gay Marriage, psychologist David Myers of RCA-affiliated Hope College and coauthor Letha Dawson Scanzoni say research has shown that strong marriages—heterosexual and homosexual—benefit society. They say it is everyone’s right to marry and fully take part in the church and its ministry.

The Reformed Church in America is an ecumenical and evangelical denomination that does not condone gay marriage. But coauthor Scanzoni also speaks from mixed theological roots as editor and publisher of the Evangelical Ecumenical Women’s Caucus publication, EEWC Update. She lives in Virginia.
