Homosexuality is no longer a sin

Today I read about the Anglican Church’s new leader and her beliefs about homosexuality. She explained how God has given us all different gifts and talents, and this includes the talent of liking the same sex. Of course, with her advanced degree in marine biology, she obviously is well-qualified and has devoted deep studies to the Bible–so I’m sure this statement is a well founded, exegetical one. I mean, as she said, “The Bible does not have so much to teach us about what sorts of food to eat, what sorts of clothes to wear — there are rules in the Bible about those that we don’t observe today.” How could Paul be so ignorant as to not equate the clothes we wear with our sexual morality? Obviously he just didn’t understand that while maybe sexual morality was a big issue back then, it wouldn’t be a big deal in the future. I mean, he was only writing for that specific time and to specific churches. No way can the things he said then apply now. Really the whole Bible is just more of a set of guidelines. Don’t feel like you need to adhere to any of it, but if you get the chance, you should at least think about it for a while.
