Peggy campolo on homosexuality
Although he has associated himself with the Democratic Party and several "left wing" groups and causes, he has publicly stated his opposition to abortion.Campolo holds a consistent life ethic stance in opposition to any human situation that leads to the termination of life including warfare, poverty/starvation (as caused by extreme wealth inequalities), capital punishment, and euthanasia. Despite his criticisms of the politically conservative evangelical community, Campolo has also criticized the more liberal mainline Christian denominations because "they fail to emphasize a personal, transforming relationship with Jesus Christ." Campolo was the subject of an informal heresy hearing in 1985 brought about by several assertions in his 1983 book A Reasonable Faith, particularly his claim that, "Jesus is actually present in each other person".He’s bona fide: Tony has been applying the Scriptures, in this way, going on sixty years of ministry, education and leadership.This is not the musings of a radical social gospeler — these are the convictions of a man heeding the “red letters” of Jesus most supremely.
Tony Campolo formerly contended that homosexuality was a sin in practice, though not in orientation.
The book became a hot button issue, and the controversy caused Campus Crusade for Christ and Youth for Christ to block a planned speaking engagement by Campolo.
