Ostensibly it was an innocuous thing to do, but for Boltz it was a big step. It eventually led to him opening up to Miner, one of the first times anybody outside Boltz’s circle of family and friends knew his long-kept secret: Ray Boltz is gay.Wow! I really don't know what else to say.
(I apologize to those of you who are nontheists, but this song meant/means a lot to me - even if just for memory, melody and sentiments of the song's lyric's sake.)
(This guy's a Christian superstar, he's the tipping point).
And as I said earlier on Soulforce, Thank you Ray Boltz. There are so many kids out there who are safer tonight because of you.
More info here, from his website: One church in particular has helped me in many ways. The Metropolitan Community Church (http://www.mccchurch.org/) was started forty years ago by Rev. Troy Perry in the Los Angeles area and has an outreach to the LGTB (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community. I am happy to announce that I have accepted an invitation to perform at two of their churches. On September 14th, I will be singing at the Jesus Metropolitan Community Church (http://jesusmcc.org/) in Indianapolis at 6:00p.m. On September 21st, I'll be singing at the Metropolitan Community Church of Washington, D.C. (http://mccdc.com/) at 3:00p.m.
