What does the Bible say about marriage equality?
In a HuffPost piece Lee Jefferson writes, “The Bible is a complicated collection of documents that was never meant to speak to our contemporary situation.” But anti-gay groups often use the Bible to attack issues like marriage equality. He writes, “According to the gospels, Jesus never commented on same-sex practices; that fact certainly bears repeating to anyone criticizing the gay community on Christian grounds. Largely, same-sex practice is a topic of little interest to the Biblical authors.”
“So does the Bible have anything to say about gay marriage? The Bible is not specific, literate, or even concerned with what we call same-sex orientation or gay marriage. But the state of New York recently had quite a lot to say about gay marriage.”
