John Corvino on Homosexuality and the Bible

HT Hemant Mehta. If you find those videos of interest, you may also be interested in some of Corvino’s other videos, and his recent book, What’s Wrong with Homosexuality? (Philosophy in Action). Corvino is a philosophy professor at Wayne State University. [Read more...]

John Byron on the Centurion’s Slave and Homosexuality in the New Testament

John Byron has offered a great response on his blog to my post about the New Testament’s relative lack of interest in the topic of homosexuality. He agrees with me on the point that at times it is appropriate to view a matter differently than New Testament authors did. And he makes the point that [Read More...]

The New Testament: Uninterested in Homosexuality?

I have found myself blogging on the topic of same-sex marriage and related subjects a lot lately. Perhaps I should try to take a more Biblical approach to the matter in the future – in other words, not talk about it much, if at all. But perhaps I can use this opportunity to share one [Read More...]

Homosexuality and Sin Flow Chart

This came my way on Facebook. While some of it is simplistic, I don't expect otherwise from a flow chart on Facebook. The notion of “civilized society” is also extremely problematic. But even so, it does seem to helpfully draw attention to the assumptions many bring to discussions of this topic. And I wanted to [Read More...]

Chick-fil-A Coupon: Trade Your Homosexuality for a Chicken Sandwich

I thought for sure that there must be some good bits of humor out there related to Chick-fil-A (sorry, I meant “chicken restaurant that must not be named”), given the current controversies. But the web’s offerings were surprisingly few – barely an extra-small fries’ worth. But then I found the coupon below on a site [Read More...]

Gene Robinson on the Bible and Homosexuality

The Lead shared links to the first two pieces in a new series that Gene Robinson is writing for The Washington Post on homosexuality and the Bible. The first is essentially about hermeneutics and Biblical interpretation. The second focuses on Leviticus. [Read more...]

Two Friars, a Fool, and Homosexuality

I previously shared links to resources related to the Bible, homosexuality, and the ordination of gays and lesbians which have been made available on the blog Two Friars and a Fool. Today, the blog features a detailed response to some criticisms of those resources which were offered by Rev. Tom Hobson. [Read more...]

The Bible and Homosexuality: Resources for Sunday School discussion

My Sunday school class has been discussing the topic of homosexuality, and we’ve reached the point where we are ready to take a close look at the New Testament passages that are potentially relevant to the topic. I’ve blogged about this subject here before, but want to offer links to web resources which reflect differing [Read More...]

Homosexuality and Hinduism in Sunday School Today

Today in my Sunday school class we began our discussion of homosexuality. It immediately took an interesting turn, with one person suggesting that “gay activists” are trying to expose children at a young age to the idea of homosexuality, so that they will treat it as normal. An individual involved in education replied by pointing [Read More...]

A Biblical Literalist Perspective on Homosexuality

Leviticus 18:22 (NIV) says “‘Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.” Leviticus 20:13 says more or less the same thing. 1 Corinthians 6:9 often loses something in translation, but the term arsenokoitai, which nowadays is often translated with some reference to homosexuality, is literally a compound word made from [Read More...]

Homosexuality as Divine Punishment in Romans 1

Romans 1 is one of the most frequently-cited passages in the New Testament when it comes to the topic of homosexuality. I considered simply reposting one of my earlier posts on the subject, but it seemed worthwhile taking the time to focus instead on one specific aspect of the passage. In Romans 1, Paul talks [Read More...]
