It's a bit more complex than that, Karl, but essentially I believe that the church (and God's love) is big enough to include people who are gay. I believe that all are loved by God. And I don't see it as a Christian duty to go around spreading hatred toward any group.<quoted text>
The above is correct.
You can swap out the word "adulterers" and the statement would be correct as well.
But you seem to think that what the Old Testament and New Testament condemn, sex with the same sex, is not actually in there.
Your claim is that the correct view of Christianity means that same sex eros is good.
(eros and agape)
Now then, what to do with those several verses is something that calls for study and discernment. At base I believe that Christians are to extend the same willingness not to judge the sins of gays as they extend to the sins of heteros. And beyond that, I believe that there is an essence in those troublesome verses that has far more to do with respect for self and others than whether one is gay or straight.
And further, in reading the Bible, I see examples of many, many family patterns in many instances and for many reasons.
I think it is foolish to start from Ozzie and Harriet and work backwards to some belief that this is explicitly taught as the correct one and only family structure in the Bible. Because it simply ain't so.
