Showing Our Buts

Outlook Weekly;9/11/2008, Vol. 13 Issue 11, p6
The author presents his objections to homophobia which he stated to Pastor Dave Allison who put a message in Havens Corners Church in Blacklick, Ohio implying that a girl who kissed a girl would go to hell. He stresses that the fact that Christians no longer urge that women be so submissive to men, which is written in the New Testament, stands to reason that Christian doctrine can also accommodate gay folks. He adds that the sin of Sodom was rape and raping men to put them in their place is a straight man's game and not an ancient gay culture.
