Ron Belgau is the cofounder, with Wesley Hill, of Spiritual Friendship, an increasingly popular group blog dedicated to exploring how the recovery of authentic Christian teaching on friendship can help to provide a faithful and orthodox response to the challenge of homosexuality. He is in the PhD program in philosophy at St. Louis University, where he teaches Ethics, Medical Ethics, Philosophy of Religion, and Philosophy of the Human Person. He has served on the steering committees for Bridges Across the Divide and the Seattle Archdiocesan Gay and Lesbian Ministry, as a group leader for Multifaith AIDS Projects, and as leader of the Gay Christian Network’s celibacy support forum. For more than a decade, he has travelled around North America speaking about Christian teaching and homosexuality. Many of his essays and speeches are available at CityofGod.net. He also blogs at First Things and Spiritual Friendship.
