James McGrath on Homosexuality

James McGrath’s Sunday School class is beginning a new series on divisive topics in Christianity. First up is homosexuality; James gives a nice summary of their discussion here.

He also includes a brief but familiar clip from NBC’s The West Wing which he describes as “useful for those interested in raising some of these issues in a discussion forum of some sort.” I tend to agree. It’s a worthwhile reminder of the weighty problems which surround any woodenly literal interpretation of the biblical text, and which do not melt away in the wake of vague comments about the “New Covenant replacing the Old.”
