Over the weekend Jennifer Knapp was in the news quite a bit. Jennifer is a musician who has been “on the music scene” since around 2000 (I guess) and is fairly well known in the CCM music circles. She sort of fell under the radar for quite some time and now has re-emerged with a new album coming out on May 11th. Recently, she did an interview with Christianity Today that discussed her comeback as a musician and her decision to be in a same-sex relationship. Apparently for years the rumors have circled that she is gay. She not only address’ that issue but also discusses her decision to take a break from the CCM music scene. With that interview, the “debate” on blogs all over has re-emerged on this hotly discussed topic.
I’d like to point you to two different discussions/posts on this story, both are well worth the read:
