Matthew Vines is a writer, speaker, advocate for LGBTQ marriage rights and founder of The Reformation Project. Vines rocked the Evangelical and Queer worlds in 2012 with his groundbreaking hour long talk “The Gay Debate: The Bible and Homosexuality” and his subsequent book, God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships (paid link)* (Convergent, 2014). As far as I can discern, Vines is the originator of the “good fruits/bad fruits” argument against traditional prohibitions against homosexuality and the subsequent notion that contradicting scriptural dictates that it is not good for the man to be alone (Genesis 2:18) produces bad fruit. Vines maintains that the Biblical writers were ignorant of modern gay, committed, loving relationships. Vines is of additional interest to the debate on gay, Christian sexual ethics because his personal sexual ethic includes (included?) abstaining from sex until marriage even as a gay man. Find him at matthewvines.com.
