A new group made up of hundreds of Wheaton College alumni says being gay is not a sin and that one can be a faithful Christian and still hold onto the LGBT identity. OneWheaton , which includes openly gay Wheaton College alumni as well as straight graduates who question the traditional biblical view that homosexuality is a sin, says it seeks to support LGBT students and offer a different theological perspective on sexuality. Wheaton College, one of the most respected evangelical higher education institutions in the nation and the alma mater of Billy Graham, takes the position that homosexual relations is a sin but that Christians should love those struggling with same-sex attraction instead of judging or ostracizing them. The new LGBT group, launched last week, says it is does not intend to battle Wheaton College and its stance on homosexuality, but it hopes to be part of the conversation on sexuality.
