Gwyneth's Goopy Lessons About Homosexuality & The Bible

Gwyneth Paltrow has something to say about homosexuality! She took to Goop to discuss her views, writing:

"A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologizing for wishing death on gays from his facebook page… This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the bible.
This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgement and separation in our society.
When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, ‘Two mommies? How lucky is she?!' What does it actually say in the bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?"

Gwynnie also posted some responses to her question on Goop. Writer Cynthia Bourgeault answers thusly: "If you believe that the bible is a single, timeless, internally consistent teaching on matters of human morality dictated by God himself, then yes, the Old Testament book of Leviticus is definitely uncomfortable with homosexuality. But it is also uncomfortable with menstruating women, shellfish and pigskin. (And for the record, it has some very harsh words to say about lending money at interest…)" More views from other scholars at the link. [Goop]
