The interpretation of the bible is called hermeneutics, or exegesis. The accepted understanding of the bible conflicted with the findings of science at least once, in the time of Galileo. We all know how that came out, although it took many years for Galileo's findings to be widely accepted. They didn't have email back then, or even telegraphs.
The findings of science of, say 50 years ago seemed to follow the understandings of the bible in that gender chromosomes, anatomy, and gender identity all seemed to follow a male/female breakdown. If sexual orientation did not, this was seen as a moral failing. If we wern't attracted to the males or females that we were supposed to, well, we're all sinners, and so what else was new?
However, the findings of science are, that more and more, these things do not fall into simple and obvious patterns, and that there are cause and effect reasons as to why this is so. I have every reason to believe that God planned things that way.
I may expand on that, I'll be back. BruceChris
Pablo is much more of a poet than I am.
EDIT: -- When I said fundamentalist I meant those with an anti-gay agenda.-- Jesus said to love one another, He didn't say that we could be picky.
"Christianity is not about what you believe, it is about how you treat other people; - with God's love"
