Simply for the sake of argument, let’s suppose that those who believe Christianity and homosexuality are compatible are able to make a persuasive case based on biblical exegesis (though I clearly hold no such view, let’s pretend it’s possible), I have some questions:
1- In your comments, blog posts, web essays, articles, and emails, why have I yet to see any of you suggest that repentance and conversion are important aspects of the Christian life vis-a-vis homosexuals and homosexuality? Homosexual behavior is regularly described as acceptable, so why isn’t the need for homosexual Christians to practice repentance? Further, why are non Christian homosexuals never urged to conversion?
2- If promiscuity is impermissible for the heterosexual Christian, why is it never the subject of your discussions of homosexuals? Are homosexual Christians held to a different ethical and moral standard than heterosexual Christians?
3- Why is it that the only issue which seems to interest you is ‘marriage equality’ whilst weightier matters such as the evangelism of the unconverted; repentance; faithful discipleship; the study of Scripture; and other like aspects of Christian life never rises to the level of catching your eye? In other words, why are you willing to discuss marriage equality while ignoring virtually every other aspect of Christian behavior?
4- If you, like some, hold the view that Scripture must sometimes take a back seat to one’s own conscience (an execrably Un-Christian viewpoint, by the way) then what is the base or foundation of your morality?
5- If your Christianity isn’t informed by solid exegesis of Scripture and your theology isn’t informed by Scripture, then what of Christianity remains for you? Can you consider yourself a Christian if Christian belief isn’t an aspect of your life which is all encompassing?
I await your lucid answers.
