As far as homosexuality is concerned what makes it immoral? Christianity
says that it is, but being a Christian is NOT a requirement for joining the
scouts last time I looked!
Actually, "Christianity" says no such thing (and please don't tar us all with
the same brush! <G>). Careful Biblical scholarship does not support this. If
you ever want to have chapter and verse to enlighten the uninformed, I
commend to your attention "The Good Book, Reading the Bible with Mind and
Heart," by the Rev. Peter J. Gomes, scholar and preacher (Baptist, no less)
extraordinaire ("one of the seven best preachers in the US," Time Magazine),
Plummer Professor of Christian Morals at Harvard University, ISBN
0-688-13447-5, Wm Morrow.
I have no financial interest in the publisher or author, although I must
state for the record that he married me to my first husband and christened
both of my babies.
