    Yes, that’s one small point (of many) overlooked in the immature, shortsighted pontification which tells far more about the author’s prejudices and fears than anything about the reality of two adults in a loving relationship who happen to be of the same sex. Some folks find the thought of sex with someone of the opposite gender repulsive, and sex with someone of the same gender attractive. However, their particular gag reflex is discounted as not only damaged, but willfully and deliberately sinful. Bullshit. It’s not the notion of same-sex sex that makes me gag, but the kind of foul but pawned-off-as-wholesome ignorance promoted by the “gag” article.

    Anyabwile’s post bring to mind two thoughts: 1) If we’re using Paul as the authority on sexual relations, maybe we should also take his lead on the slavery issue, and 2) I get a gag reflex when I picture sex between old couples. Maybe we should change the laws so that marriages are annulled when the first partner reaches the age which triggers the gag reflex in 51% of the general adult population.

    Thabiti’s argument backfires with a younger generation and, I would guess, most honest married couples. Most of us have shared in *gasp* oral sex. If that is not horrific for straight couples, it is not horrific for gay couples either.
