Was Paul gay?

Recommended Posts

Israel took that attitude in the Bible several times and it always failed.  Read the ending of Judges, a book which documents the gradual degeneration and dissolution of the Hebrew government.  A history better remembered than repeated

Thank you Paul ... you understood my point and addressed it. 

Thormas apparently has an academic interest in the interpretations texts of the sexuality of some guy 2000 years ago. You do recognize it has some relevance to today.

Now I understand this is a Progressive Christian forum and there is a tendency to look at life today through ancient texts; I get it. But then there are more modern texts and what the hell we can write our own texts on our own authority. Might result in some more original debate. :)

Rom: another swing and a miss!

Sorry Thormas  ... I am completely missing your point. You claim the subject of whether Paul was gay is intriguing.

I am asking why do we care?

You are missing everything yet again, go back and try reading the thread.

But you still could have a go at answering my question. Thanks

Done and already done, all positions are clear in the thread - simply read with some attention and leave the preconceptions at the door.

Thormas

What I am trying to replicate is "error correction" in communication. This is where the receiver repeats what it thinks it has heard and if incorrect the transmitter retransmits. 
"Swing and a miss" and "Done and already done" are far from helpful. Just because positions are clear to the transmitter does not mean all positions are clear in of themselves.

An open dialogue would be appreciated.

My position is straightforward and in the thread. 

I did answer your direct question earlier. Now you have reworded it and asked again. Asked and answered - so, again I refer you to the thread. Read!
