The queer Evangelical hero?

Jim Elliot has been an icon of sexual ‘purity’. His truth is coming out.

To grow up Evangelical, you knew about Jim Elliot. He was one of five missionaries who became a martyr in Ecuador in 1956.

Nobody was closer to God than Jim, except maybe his widow, Elisabeth Elliot, who wrote “classic” books about him like Through Gates of Splendor in 1956, and in 1958, Shadow of the Almighty.
