What the Bible says about homosexuality
I am the God of the Bible. Fear me and obey!
(TEDx Talks) Kristin Saylor and Jim O'Hanlon talk about what the Bible really says about homosexuality and other LGBTQ topics.

The Rev. Kristin Saylor is an Episcopal priest, currently serving St. Peter’s Church in Port Chester, New York. Originally from Wisconsin, she is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Virginia Theological Seminary. She and her husband reside in the Bronx and enjoy availing themselves of NYC’s many cultural and culinary delights.

The Bible says Asherah was God's wife
Jim O’Hanlon has been a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America since 2000, at St. Paul’s Church in Rye Brook since 2010. 

Raised in a large, Irish Roman Catholic family, O'Hanlon has a keen interest in the liturgical, social, and church reforms of the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s. He joined the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America because of its witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ and the inclusion of women, male gays, lesbians, and all people in full participation and leadership in the church. 

Adam and Eve were not the first human race.
After college he earned a master's of divinity from Union Theological Seminary in NYC and subsequently a master's of sacred theology from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He completed several graduate courses in Jewish-Christian studies at Seton Hall University in New Jersey.

He serves on various boards including the Port Chester Council of Community Services and the LGBT Advisory Council for the County Executive. He enjoys collaborating with colleagues. 

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community
