  •  UGH Paul: (3+ / 0-)

    My least fave in the NT.  But since you brought him up I was told by a very conservative Presbyterian minister that there was specutlation among theologians that Paul was gay.  Speculating that the thorn in his side was that he was a homosexual.  I never looked into it, but maybe I'll see if there is anything floating about the nets about it.

      but there is at least one book that develops a psychological profile of paul as a self-loathing, homophobic homosexual.

      i have spent most of my adult life  coming to terms with dear all his wackadoodle ideas about women and marriage, when he "gets it", he's spot on.

        That S. Paul, who by your own admission, has expounded upon the most profound spiritual truths with astounding poignancy and accuracy, somehow magically goofed about something simple like whether homosexuality is permitted, or that you are wrong?

        Let's use Occam's razor here, people.

        Interesting, I'll have to google to see if I can find it.  Thanks!!  I never have been able to warm up to Paul at all.  My fave has always been Thomas, the "doubting" one.  Then again I don't put much stock in the bible since it's been retranslated numerous times plus too many contratictions for my liking.  I'm more of a "spiritual" type person than a "religious" type person.  But I do find knowledgable discussions about religion and the bible interesting.
