VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – CBN is named a winner of the 37th Annual Telly Awards for their CBN News Special Report addressing the complex issue of homosexuality in the Church. Reported by George Thomas and Heather Sells, “Homosexuality: A Christian View” offers an honest conversation dealing with the social, spiritual and scientific aspects of human sexuality and its implications for Christians everywhere.
Beginning the broadcast on a pointedly compassionate note, CBN anchor John Jessup reminds the audience that “we are all sinners in need of God’s grace regardless of what particular sins we commit. As such, none of us is in a position to judge another.”
“As Christians, it’s imperative that we shine God’s love and light on this incredibly important and often painful issue and this broadcast has the power to bring real healing to families everywhere. I’m so proud of George, Heather and the entire CBN team for not only producing an excellent piece of content, but one that navigates this topic with so much love and honesty,” says CEO Gordon P. Robertson.
By interviewing experts in theology, ministry, science and psychology the broadcast documents real families as they attempt to reconcile their faith with their own experience.
Intentionally offering few conclusions, “Homosexuality: A Christian View” tackles head on such controversial questions as: Is homosexual attraction a choice? What causes same-sex attraction? And can sexual orientation change?
“It’s broadcasts like these that continue to reinforce my belief in CBN’s critical role as a strong and capable Christian voice in the midst of the broader cultural landscape. I’m tremendously grateful that our very talented team is being recognized for their efforts” concludes Robertson.
