So, it is an arbitrary command, thou shalt not commit homosexual acts? Just as I have been saying, there is no rational reason to prohibit it, except that it is not “according to nature.” You can say that it is not a ritual purity issue, but sins against nature, that cause no physical or psychological damage to the person or those around him are based simply on what we “feel” is too disgusting to allow. The problem is, if I don’t share your particular sense of disgust, or feel that I can overlook it, what are you then left with as a reason for prohibiting it?
Arbitrary rules, even if Biblically based, because ultimately, no rule is arbitrary. All rules have a reason, and sometimes what is a good reason at one time is not a good reason at another time. Rules that are based on disgust and purity sensibilities are just those kinds of rules. They change as the culture changes, and that is not a bad thing.
You can quote all the texts you want about homosexuality, but you will find when you dig more deeply into these texts and their cultural meaning, none of them applies to homosexuality in a healthy, monogamous marriage. How could they, since no such institution existed? I know change is hard, but people’s lives and happiness are at stake. We dare not turn those away from the kingdom that want so badly to be there, and who are no more sinners in God’s sight than you or I.
