Trouble keeping up with the Eugene Peterson debacle? Religion News posted an interview in which Eugene Peterson allegedly claimed he was fine with LGBT relationships and would marry a same-sex couple and that many he knows have spiritual lives as good as his.

Many blogs have drawn lessons from this back and forth, some kinder than others to Peterson. I was reminded of many friends who have enjoyed his books, and hope I can read his The Pastor someday.
