What, if anything, does the Bible have to say about homosexuality?

On April 28th, the Supreme Court will hear arguments regarding the ability of individual states to prohibit same-sex marriage.  It may surprise you to learn that until 1961, long before the possibility of legally-recognized homosexual marriage was imagined, homosexual practice was prohibited by law in every state.  And it was not until 2003 that the Supreme Court struck down all laws against homosexuality nationwide.

Needless to say, American’s views on homosexuality are rapidly changing.  While a few decades ago it was only considered acceptable by a small minority, it is becoming the case that any negative view of homosexuality is equated with racism.  This cultural climate puts biblically-based Christians in a tough position.  Does the Bible really teach that homosexuality is wrong, and if so, why?  Is it just some outdated, arbitrary rule (like “don’t wear a garment made of two different fabrics”), or are there valid reasons why God would warn mankind against this lifestyle?  In this episode Kevin takes a look at both Old and New Testament verses that deal with this issue.  He also shares statistical data that discredit the popular idea that the homosexual lifestyle holds no dangers—data our culture chooses to suppress in the name of “tolerance” rather than face head-on.

“Then he said to them, ‘The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.'” –Mark 2:27
