Lesbians and gays are the Bible's greatest lovers, says Trevor Dennis

Writing today in The Guardian Trevor Dennis, Vice Dean of Chester Cathedral argues here that the Bible is not as lacking in a positive assessment of homosexuality as anti-gay conservative Christians might think. (Click on title for link.) In fact he sets out to show that the Bible celebrates same-sex relationships. Not only that, but there are more examples of good role-models for same-sex love than there are for exemplary marriage in the Bible! His conclusion is that there are pressing issues around human relationships in our society that the Church needs to be challenging rather than condemning loving homosexual couples, such as casual infidelity, lack of time and love for children, the devaluing of friendship, and domestic violence.
