Roberts at one point calls Kurek out on his seemingly superficial approach to living the life of a gay person, asking him how he "validates this to those who wrestle with this for years...and might be offended by what you've done, by thinking that simply coming out to your family then going to some bars and some clubs and a bookstore that you actually know what the heck it's really like to be a gay man living in modern-day times." Kurek acknowledges that "there is no way I could possibly understand what it's like to actually be gay," but says his book isn't "all about what it is like to be gay," rather "about how the label of gay impacted my external life and how those things kind of altered my faith and challenged my beliefs." The untitled tome is due out this October, and Kurek says he hopes LGBT readers will "accept my apology."
Regardless of whether the initial action was right or wrong, this could turn into an effective teaching tool.
