I'd imagine most of us don't believe the Bible mentions it at all. On more than one occasion I've directed people to Amazon.com. There are dozens of books on all religions and homosexuality written by people that have no gay ties or agenda. They're just scholars. I've run across a few web sites that have lists of different religion's opinions about homosexuality. I don't feel a need to run out and convert to one that says it's okay.
This quote is on the First MCC web site in the ATL:
"Find more grace in the search for understanding than we do in dogmatic certainty - more value in questioning than in absolutes;"
I had spoken with the minister last year at Pride without knowing who he was. It turns out that an independent woman minister that teaches classes at our center has also been teaching at the MCC. Joyce is usually at our retreats when we go to the mountains.
