Homosexuality, science, and theology

I listened to a really informative lecture last night by Stanton Jones, Provost and Professor of Psychology at Wheaton College and Graduate School. In it, he looks briefly at the theological issues involved in the modern discussions surrounding homosexuality and homosexual practice, and then delves much more deeply in to what modern psychology has to say. He looks at a number of scientific studies, plumbing the depths of what they say and don't say, and exploding a number of myths about what "science says." This informative lecture is well done, and is by an expert in the field of psychology, who is a member of the American Psychological Association and was a member of its Council of Representatives. Thus, he speaks as someone with very good credentials in psychology.
