Photo detail

This undated photo provided by First Baptist Church shows The Rev. Robert Jeffress. The Baptist pastor of the 11,000-member Dallas church hasn't stopped preaching that homosexual sex is sinful, but he no longer singles it out for special condemnation. Now, Jeffress says, he usually talks about homosexuality within "a bigger context of God's plan for sex between one man and one woman in a lifetime relationship called marriage."
