The Human Rights Campaign has recently launched a new website, Out In Scripture. This site provides distinctive insights into the Bible from an LGBT and straight-supportive perspective. HRC's goal is to provide faithful and thoughtful help for preachers and other persons of faith as they work for a more compassionate, just and inclusive society. Out In Scripture is developed by teams of skilled and prayerful scholars comprised of a diverse group of professors of Bible, ethics and preaching from leading theological schools...including Christian Theological Seminary here in Indianapolis.

One of the writers is Dr. Charles Allen, an out gay Episcopal priest who serves as chaplain for Grace Unlimited, a Lutheran-Episcopal university ministry. Likewise, another contributing writer, Dr. Michael Miller, is a straight man and ally who teaches philosophical and systematic theology

HRC also provides resources on the site to organizations such as Jewish Mosaic: The National Jewish Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity and to events such as a historic interfaith transgender conference being held in Corvallis, Oregon this October.
