I like not having to sift through piles of profiles!
One of my seminary professors instilled in me the practice of “the ministry of the well-placed book,” (thank you, Dr. ) and I keep this shelf front and center in my office, hoping the message will be literally seen and figuratively heard: I am not afraid to talk about all aspects of being human, including (but not limited to) sexuality.
It’s a bummer that we in the church have such a garbage history of dealing with sexuality that I have to think of creative ways to make this point well with my parishioners.

Since the movement entails a number of different beliefs and views on various topics, it is difficult to label the whole movement decisively as “biblical” or “unbiblical.” Each claim and belief of any movement should be filtered through the Word of God, and whatever does not line up with Scripture should be rejected.
Beyond the encounter with the historic Jesus is the meeting with the Inner Christ. The spiritual journey takes us from self-affirmation to divine affirmation, from affirmation of the divine within to the affirmation of the divine in all people in some form or other. Paul does not mention a virgin birth or an empty tomb.
The Gospel of Thomas and the canonical Mark do not have a birth narrative or appearances of a physical resurrected Jesus.
In this sense, then, the views of many progressive Christians do not fit with biblical principles.
In the end, however, discretion is needed in evaluating a particular claim or belief in terms of Scripture; the whole spectrum of beliefs identified by the term “Progressive Christianity” is too broad to permit an unequivocal conclusion as to whether or not it can be labeled unbiblical.
