Wrestling with God and Men: Four Rationales for the Biblical Prohibition

Two verses in Leviticus have authorized a harsh rejection of homosexuality. Why? Rules cannot be intelligently and fairly applied without a sense of their intended aims. We will explore four rationales for the prohibition of sex between men which appear in the traditional literature-each offering a different perspective and a different frame for a reconsideration of the law’s application.

At the end of the afternoon, we will make our way to the GLOE assembly point for the Pride March!  Please sign up to march with GLOE and to reserve a T-shirt.
