What Does the Bible Say About Homosexuality? [8:15]

Description

Atheist blogger and author Hemant Mehta discusses, one by one, the handful of passages in the Bible that explicitly mention homosexuality.  He largely focuses on the arguments that Liberal Christians use to explain these verses in a way that permits homosexuality, as well as some of the weak points in these arguments.  The video is calm, paced, and presents the arguments in a clear way.

Discussion Questions

  • What does the Old Testament say about homosexuality?  Does the New Testament treat same sex relations differently or the same?
  • If you had to interpret the Bible as coherently as possible, what does it say in the end about homosexuality?
  • What do you think of the arguments Liberal Christians use to defend the Bible?

Keywords: Bible, Christianity, scripture, homosexuality, gay, lgbt, lesbian, sin, textual analysis, bigotry
