Harvard student Matthew Vines speaks on the theological debate regarding the Bible and the role of gay Christians in the church. Delivered at College Hill United Methodist Church in Wichita, Kansas on March 8, 2012. Transcript can be found here.
This video is long, but it’s worth the time. Read the transcript if you prefer. Vines has done careful research for nearly two years, looking at how translation affects meaning, how culture influences morality, and how Biblical verses (hello, Leviticus!) CANNOT simply be taken at face value. Come to think of it, I only watched this once, back in May… think I owe it another listen. (This post inspired by a friendly anon).
EDIT: Both t-reyrex and johnlikesboys94 recommend Fish Out of Water for more on the topic. There’s also For the Bible Tells Me So, though I’m not sure if that’s specifically about the Bible’s stance on homosexuality, or about how Biblically-based bigotry affects people’s lives (haven’t watched it yet). The internet is a great wealth of information :)
