Tony Jones knows what it’s like for Christian leaders like Jim Wallis and Rob Bell to come out in favor of gay marriage. After he came out in support of gay marriage, Jones lost work and publishing contracts. “There’s a cost when you are a Christian leader and you come out in favor of marriage equality,” said Jones, theologian and author of “Questions that Haunt Christianity.” “However, there’s a time when you have to look at where your heart is leading.” Jones also spoke with Odyssey about ways to reduce poverty.
