Days before posting his interview with Rob Bell on skirting heresy and embracing uncertainty, Out of Ur's Skye Jethani reported on Bell's clearest statement of support for gay marriage yet.

Brian McLaren—post-evangelical pastor and Bell's friend—commended Bell for his "courageous" remarks, comparing gay marriage support with the struggle for women's equality and civil rights.

Many find Bell's declaration unsurprising, considering his previous statements about the gay community.

In a Facebook post, David Fitch questions whether Rob Bell's opinions are still relevant to the church at large, since he is no longer accountable to a congregation. Tony Jones says, yes, "Rob Bell still matters."
