St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Mount Vernon, WA interviewed PTGA writer Conrad Askland about his upcoming musical theater work Pray the Gay Away®. You can read the interview here: http://stpaulsmv.org/pray-the-gay-away-an-interv/
St. Paul’s has been blessed to provide our parish hall as a rehearsal space for the musical comedy, and while its subject matter may be controversial for many in the larger faith community, we fully endorse its effort to create a conversation around the topic as part of living into the Gospel message of love, acceptance, and inclusiveness. While we certainly don’t claim to know what Jesus would have thought about conversion therapy, we do know that he had a habit of challenging the status quo when it came to reaching out to marginalized members of society, and accepting others as God made them.
