John W Burgeson replied to Ian's post:
>Ian: You wrote, in part: "(3) Though it's politically incorrect to draw attention to such things, many Anglican clergy are talking about having gay marriage services. Apparently here's another bit of the bible (OT and NT) that is supposedly no longer relevant to today's society."
>Burgy: I think this issue is more the result of some people doing some serious Bible study and coming to the conclusion that the scriptures, unlike tradition, are silent on some instances of homosexual activity. Whether they are right or not (I think they are, but that's not the issue here), their arguments take scripture as seriously as those with the orthodox
view they've always been taught. <
In most of the cases I have seen, Ian's assessment is clearly correct. More specificity on exactly who you think has made a credible argument is probably advisable.
