PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. (AP) _ A 23-year-old Wichita man who gained attention with an online lecture about the Bible and homosexuality has gathered 50 people from Christian churches around the country for a program on his perspective that the Bible doesn't condemn homosexuality as a sexual orientation.

Matthew Vines says liberal and moderate Christian churches have adopted more gay-friendly stances, but conservative churches remain steadfast against homosexuality. Vines hopes to change that with his message that the Bible doesn't say same-sex orientation is a sin.

In 2012 Vines posted his presentation on the topic online. Since then the video has garnered about 600,000 views and been translated into several languages.

He says this week's three-day conference in Prairie Village is aimed at giving participants tools to change the minds of conservative Christians about same-sex relationships.
