    Dont forget my favorite, Jonathan and David in the Book of Samuel in the Old Testament.

    Church goers will read it and say "It is a story about brotherly love." but anyone who reads it and doesn't see the blatant love story, (not sexual story, but love story) in that historical book is trying too hard to be anti-gay.

    How about Sodom and Gamorah?

    That was lust, not love.


    There is a difference between the two?

    There was some open space between what he knew and what he tried to believe, but nothing could be done about it, and if you can't fix it you've got to stand it.

    The Sodom and Gamorah story is often misunderstood because the cultural and language differences have changed the brunt of the story. Puritans focused on the sexual threat, but the jewish tradition is that the story is about the lack of hospitality, which was critical in that culture.
