    David doesn't love anyone.

    Everyone, everyone, loves David.

    Not sure what's history and what's propaganda there (I'm sure it's some combination), but the text never says that David loved Jonathan.

    Interestingly, Greek does differentiate between different kinds of love, but the Septuagint uses agape to describe both Michal's love for David (and they get married) and Jonathan's love for David (and they make a covenant), so you can't use the fact that the Greek uses the "friendly" kind of love as opposed to the "erotic" kind of love to argue much, because the "friendly" kind of love gets Michal a husband.

    David and Jonathan are actually a terrible model of gay relationships.  If they slept together, it's because David used sex relentlessly to exert power over the house of Saul, and ultimately to destroy it.  Not what I want my boyfriend (should I ever find one) to do to me, or vice versa.

    If religion means a way of life, and life's necessities are food, clothing, and shelter, then we should not separate religion from economics. - Malcolm X
