Peter Gomes, RIP

One of America's great preachers is dead.  Rev. Peter Gomes, preacher at the Chapel at Harvard University, died last Monday of a stroke.  His book, entitled The Good Book, was one of those that you read and remember, because he showed that the Bible has been used to support slavery, the domination of women, and the suppression of homosexulity.  Therefore, how one interprets the 'Good Book' is very important and must be done carefully and reasonably. 

Incidentally, Gomes was gay.  RIP, Pastor Gomes.
