commented on He's Mormon and He's Gay and He's Coming Out
There's are a numer of elephents always in the room when these discussionstake place.
I'll just point to a few that pop into my head
What is it about Christianity that makes being gay more than a biblical sin,sush that it becomes and obsesion. That and the ubiquitous abuse by male priests, elders etc of young men needs to be examined in the light of Christian theology, biblical studies and worship practices. (A good place to start answering some of these questions is Bishop Shelby Spongs 'The Sins of Scripture'.)
As to worship practices consider, for instance, the worship of an almost naked man, nailed to a cross often portrayed with and extatic expression on his face. Sadly political so called correctness forbids us criticising religion so we prattle on and on about the many 'evil' individuals, such as Catholic priests, who have betrayed out 'trust' yet we dare not ask what is it about that particular religion that consistently attracts peadophiles. And dont' get me started on Mormons seriously weird 'sacred' underpants.
As to the so called abominable sin of sodomy hasn't anyone noticed this isn't exclusively praciced by homosexuals?
I could go on and on but
