The LGBT community and biblical scholars tackled issues at the nexus of religion, politics, and sexuality during the two day conference.

The Bishop of Buckingham, Rev. Alan Wilson told Cayman 27 40 years of bible study have given him some insight on the scripture.

He said many in the flock share the view that the teachings of love from in the bible are prone to be overshadowed by church politics.

He said cherry-picking the scripture to support a viewpoints that espouse hatred misses the point of Christianity.
“I think you can read the bible on all kinds of levels, and you can pick stuff out of it, sound bites that validate the stuff you wanted to find in there,” he said. “I do that, you do that, everybody does that who reads the bible, but in the end there are some very big Christian meta-values that, by their fruits, we all know them.”

He said he sees the LGBT community within the church finding its own voice as the same-sex marriage debate gains traction worldwide..

Bishop Wilson said nearly 1/5 of the world’s population – 1.5 billion people – have access to marriage equality.
