  • Rev. Jonathan Loppnow and Rev. Paul C. Evans "Same Gender Sexual Behavior and the Scriptures" 1/7/98 - "Contrary to what many people have been taught, there is nothing in the Bible which condemns people with a homosexual orientation having same gender relationships. In fact, did you know the word 'homosexual' does not occur in the Bible at all in the original languages it was written in? This publication is called 'Same Gender Sexual Behavior and the Scriptures' because the scriptural texts considered only deal with sexual behavior not with homosexual sexuality as a whole or homosexual orientation."
  • Inge Anderson - "Saying that the last recorded acts of the Sodomites -- the demands for same-gender sex -- are proof that they were destroyed for homosexuality is like saying that a condemned man cursing his guards on the way to his execution is being executed for cursing the guards. Sodom was judged worthy of destruction before the incident with Lot and the angels."[1]
