Gene Robinson 2

I've got a lot of very interesting, and very helpful comments regarding my last article, so thank you! I decided it would be best to respond to some of them like this, rather than individual replies…
Roland: Your point of view was useful, as someone who has moved from one side of the arguement to another – unfortunatly, Christians at my University are very unwilling to talk to me about this issue, as it is very contentous in our own Christian Union, and so an opinion from any Christian is very welcome! Looking at the question from the other side is something I think I touched on in my section about love in Christianity, although like you say, there is probably more to say a bout it. Unfortunatly, I'm constricted by time and a word limit, but I am going to post a follow up article (this piece will eventually be assessed), and I'd really appreciate hearing what you think!
Chris: Thank you for your opinions, and again, I shall take them into account. However, I'm afraid I disagree with you on one vital point – I do not believe that there is anywhere in the bible that condemns homosexual, consensual relations. The bible discussess rape, and situations where homosexuality disturbs both the body and spirit, but not once does it even comment on a homosexual relationship. I would also argue that the majority of the Christian Church does not even teach that homosexuality is wrong. True, it may be advised against, but it does not, it cannot – because of the lack of scriptural evidence – teach against. These are views I expolre and back up in my next article that shall be posted soon, and I'd appreciate hearing what you think!
John: Thanks as well to you. You bring up a very important point, and in my arguement, I think this is were opinion has to step in. I believe the Church needs to wake up to the 21st century in many respects, but I am well aware of the fact that many Chrisitans feel the need for a "code of behaviour" that does not stray from what the bible says, and this is a point I discuss at length in my next article. Please read it and let me know what you think! Thank you!
