What do you guys think about this Gay Marriage Rights Amendment?
There's nothing in the Gospels that claims being homosexual is wrong or right. It's never mentioned.
Additionally you may want to think about the following facts.
1) All men were expected to be married in the Jewish tradition, it would be very suspect and highly unusual for a man to be unmarried at the age of 20. Jesus died unmarried over 30.
2) It is highly unusual for a man to associate with 12 other men to the exclusion of a family life in the Jewish tradition. Jesus spent virtually all his time in the company of twelve men with a strong attachment to him.
Before you get outraged, re-check your gospels for any indication that homosexuality was ever an issue for Jesus or the earliest Christians. The Romans and Greeks of the time found sex with anything to be nothing more than an enjoyable pastime. It's only latter Christianity and Jews that found issue with it.
it's in the old testament, which the new testament adopts to the extent not superceded by jesus in the new testament....nice try...
