Are Gay Rights Wrong?

What do Rob Bell and Tzipi Livni have in common? Little, perhaps, except that in their own way, they are advocates for rolling back the Bible's position on same-sex relationships and sexual acts.

Bell said, "The ship has sailed", implying that in order to be relevant we should conform to the dominant culture. In recent years, the majority in many Western countries has moved from being strongly opposed to homosexual marriage, to accepting it.

In my August newsletter article, I look at the way the homosexual lobby has been active and consider the the two main arguments against homosexual lifestyles: the argument from natural law and the biblical argument. Is this simply a matter of rebellion against God's order and design? Have we lost the fear of God? What is our view of the Bible and reality?

There have been quite a few comments already, so why not read the article here and then chip in - here on the blog or at the bottom of the article.
