"In the Oct.  'Anglican Journal', Graham Patterson ['Bible is infallible', p. 5] asks where I find my views on same-sex marriage backed up by scripture. First, in Genesis, God sees everything he has created as very good. Modern medical science tells us that homosexuality is inborn, not a matter of choice. .... We may conclude this is part of creation, which God saw as good. Second, Jesus is constantly found among the outcasts and is frequently condemned for this by the Pharisees. .... Jesus tells us we are to love our neighbours as ourselves (Matt. 22:39-40; Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27), and the epistles repeat this as the most important commandment". "The overarching message of scripture is one of God's unconditional love for all of us and a command that we should treat people in the same way. I believe that Jesus would not condemn people to a life of celibacy to which they are not called, simply because they have an innate desire for someone of the same sex. I don't believe the church soul do this, either".
