It is refreshing to see a Protestant Pastor and academic come to his senses over the gay issue. The link author formerly was opposed to equality for gays but has changed his mind.
In changing his mind, he did what endless Christians admonish others do here on our discussion board. He put the Biblical comments about same gender sex in context. He found that when one does this, there is no condemnation of homosexuality.
This confusion about what the Bible means when it refers to same sex relationships highlights the entire problem. That problem is the Bible was not written for this year, last year or any year after it was written. It was written over a span of many years and each part addressed issues from the limited perspective of that point in time.
On social issues, we can look at the role Christianity plays in justifying slavery. Add to that the on going limits to women’s role in some branches. Each of these is as bogus as the claim homosexuality is a sin or even a moral issue.
People are free to like or dislike homosexuality. But, using the Bible as a crutch to justify this dislike is where one parts company with more high minded principles.
The link uses the term “error” for interpreting the Bible as condemning homosexuality. In my own limited knowledge of the Bible, that seems like an appropriate term.
