The same-sex case that the Supreme Court is hearing this week has me thinking a lot about this subject. I recently stumbled upon an article that gives a fantastic rebuttal to the Old Testament story that many Christians (not me!!) like to pull out as an example of why the Bible condems homosexuality:
This part sums up how I feel: " Verses like this would saddle Christians with all the Old Testament customs, from the sacrifices to the crazy stuff like genocide that they’d like to distance themselves from, and they’ll say that they apply to Jews only. Fair enough—then stop cherry picking Old Testament passages if the Old Testament doesn’t apply to you."
This "cherry-picking" of Bible versers drives me nuts. To me, the overall nature of Christians is to LOVE, not HATE, their neighbors and this is how I chose to believe and live my life.
Agree? Disagree? Just try not to call me a Nazi
