Nature and Same-Sex Unions

Today's Gray Lady amazingly includes an even-handed article on people who make a case against same-sex marriage by invoking biology rather than dogma.

SWNID approves, since today's Christians in the public forum ought to be able to argue their case at least as well as Paul did.

Seems like a pretty high standard... saying that everyone should be at least as convincing as Paul might be setting the bar a bit high.

Also, I'm a bit disappointed that you're citing the English Standard Version. I would hope that you'd avoid these modern "gender-neutral" translations that muddy the exegetical waters by refusing the translate the bible literally.

Thanks for your non-literal use of the world "literal."

That's nothing. I talked to a guy not long ago who told me he'd "literally" turned his office upside down looking for his keys.

I was pretty impressed, honestly. That's a level of dedication I can't even aspire to. I'd probably give up after just the desk and the lamps, let alone the whole building.
