The wonderful Professor Peter Gomes, a Baptist preacher and theologian (who came out as a gay man in 1992) who teaches at Harvard, hits up the Colbert Report to promote his new book, The Scandalous Gospel of Jesus.

And, that we Christians need to do the same. Change is good!
“Churches today are not agents of change, they are agents of conservatism.”
