KANSAS CITY, Mo. (BP) -- In the 1990s, Promise Keepers (PK) became a Christian phenomenon reaching tens of thousands of men through the ministry of Bill McCartney, former coach of the University of Colorado football team. Promise Keepers' purpose was to evangelize men to become believers in the Messiah and better husbands and fathers. While incredibly successful, it had detractors who claimed that its message and attitudes were misogynistic and homophobic. In the context of the PK event in Kansas City, my faith and effort to live my faith in my profession were seriously tested.
