Amen, brother John. Amen.

Thanks, John, please keep saying this!

Thank you for stating the case so clearly. What is really puzzling to me is how we're starting to see the banner of innerancy being waved in certain corners of the Anglican Communion. Even the 39 Articles insist on the necessity of biblical interpretation.

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness [2 Tim 3:16]

Righteousness can be translated as "living in right relationships". And that is how sexuality should alwys be exprerssed.

Karen: Article 20 enjoins the church simply to expound the word of God written. This article ISTM teaches the perspicuity of scripture;.

OB is completely right about righteousness and right relationships. This does not preclude those of the same sex.

Salt,
this means that the Bible does address the topic of sexuality when it speaks of righteousness. We agree (Although I may disagree with you about what else it says).

Yeah, but didn't Christ teach the dual structure of marriage or celibacy? Did he not preach against porneia (sex outside of marriage)?
