So, what do you think Forest Park churches are teaching about homosexuality?  Is it a sin?  A choice?  Are they welcoming of GLBT folks?  Would they do a same gender wedding? 

I wrote a story about how Oak Park congregations deal with the gay issue a couple months ago and, to no one's surprise, found that most are quite liberal.  At least three, in fact, of openly gay pastors. 

Right now I'm interviewing Forest Park pastors, asking them what they teach about homosexuality.  The results will be appearing soon in the Review and here in the blog.

What do you think the churches in Forest Park will say?
