Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2005
Justin R. Cannon, founder of Truth Sets Free Ministries (http://www.truthsetsfree.net) announced today the launch of www.RainbowChristians.com. The site’s introduction to the web marks it as the Internet’s only devoted gay Christian matchmaking site. Cannon explains, “Most GLBTQ Christians are excluded from joining Christian personals sites, and gay and other personals sites aren’t structured to meet their specific needs. The growing gay Christian demographic deserves a welcoming safe place tailored just for them.”
RainbowChristians.com emerged out of Cannon’s own frustration with the lack of networking presence on the web for meeting other gay Christians. RainbowChristians.com is not just for those looking for a life partner; but provides an opportunity to find friends or even a Bible study partner.
Cannon launched an informational website earlier this year, under his Truth Sets Free Ministries. The website distributes his recently printed study, “The Bible, Christianity, & Homosexuality,” which looks closely at the six Bible ‘clobber passages’ used to condemn gays. His study reveals how misinterpretation of these passages has resulted in the marginalization of gays in the Church. Cannon’s efforts have been featured in the prominent gay newsmagazine The Advocate, and an editorial in the LA Times. He has been interviewed on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SIRIUS Satellite Radio, along with other radio shows, and is a becoming a requested speaker at gay and gay Christian events.
RainbowChristians.com is the Internet’s largest devoted gay Christians personals & matchmaking site.
Justin Cannon, 21 years old, spent 11 years of his young life in an intentional Christian community in the inner city of Detroit. Now he is majoring in French with minors in both Religion and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at Earlham College. Raised in the Episcopal Church, later interest in Catholic, Orthodox, and Quaker theologies have him led towards an ecumenical perspective that recognizes a deep sense of unity among Christians that transcends the walls of denominations. After he graduates, he plans to attend seminary to pursue priesthood in the Episcopal Church.
