Some of you are aware that Ray Boltz, who recorded many, many hit songs back in the day, was perhaps the first artist who claimed to be Christian to “come out” as a homosexual (and left his wife and children). Read about it here.
I met and spoke with him a few times when I was on Family Life Network/Ministry staff. I was…and am…stunned by his surrender to homosexuality.
