    There are very clear Scripture passages that condemn homosexuality. I
    am well aware of a small number of scholars who have attempted to
    reinterpret these passsages, but it is clear that they are simply
    trying to fit Scripture into their own perspectives. Furthermore, in
    support of these passages is the natural law argument that
    homosexuality is against the nature of the human person, and is
    therefore quite different from lefthandedness. Finally, a third
    argument is the weight of consensus in Christianity for 2000 years
    that sex is reserved for marriage, and the close connection betwen
    marriage and procreation.
