  •  there are 3 verses in the NT... (5+ / 0-)

    ...all attributed to paul.

    in context, using what we know about koine greek and the culture of the time, paul wasn't writing about homosexuality  but rather about certain activities that most of us would find unacceptable...pederasty, infidelity (not as big an issue in the glbt community but it is an issue for many of us) and sexual slavery (generally with young pubescent boys). then, throw in a little temple sex and you have the whole pot of stew.

    none of these things have anything to do with the concept of homosexuality as an orientation or with love being expressed in mutual, supportive relationships...much less as a culture.

    there are tons of works by prominent theologians on the subject, written by both hetero- and glbt authors.
