I'm getting at the fact that it's quite possible to twist out of 1 Cor 6:9-10.

My husband was flipping through the channels last night and stopped on Larry King, which featured the Osteens (yay!). They were talking about gay marriage and Larry King said that he read this very fascinating article that talks about how the Bible not only does not condemn gay marriage, but is actually full of examples of it! He kept telling Joel Osteen that he should read that article so he has "other Bible verses to think about." I'd love to get my hands on that article, so I can see all those homosexual marital relationships. Anyone heard of this before?

p.s., The Osteens did not come across as very intelligent.

He is almost certainly thinking of a comically awful article in Newsweek.

ah yes, I did read the first page of that article a few weeks ago. It IS comically awful... but somehow I can't laugh. Having now gone back and read the rest, I think that Larry King was misrepresenting it if that's the one he was thinking of. I'm not shocked.

Larry King is not the sharpest knife in the drawer either. When your priority is being glib, deep thinking is not well served.

His squirm out of 1 Cor 6:9 is that the word "homosexual" isn't used.

I already pointed out that neither does the word "Trinity" appear either and asked him if he doesn't believe in the Trinity since the word ins't there.

I think I got him, though. I simply pointed out that he can't point out subjective morality unless by insisting on it objectively.

Thank You all!

Then I don't know of any silver bullets in this regard. I agree Rom 1 and 1 Cor 6 condemn it, but if someone is going to do the twist, you cannot stop them.

Honestly.... I think if anyone is delusional enough to think that the Bible approves of same sex marriage than he is probably beyond the reach of rational argument, and certainly cannot be persuaded simply by citing Bible verses, to which he no doubt already has a pre-buttal prepared for you.

I now know how I feel about Newsweek. WOW. Good for that person who called out the writer...I sure hope she changes careers...and FAST.
