    This has been explained 100 times. Search the threads.
    I'm no longer very religious but it's all easily reconciled. I object to the way our religious members (or anyone else for that matter) are expected to justify their belief systems over and over again. It's like the Atheist Inquisition here.

    I believe the Bible was inspired by God, but I don't believe it is literally true the way jockfever does. On the other hand, I think most attempts to explain away the passages that condemn homosexuality are pretty weak. So where does that leave me?

    Fucked up, mostly.

    I make myself feel better by believing that when Jesus died on the cross he saved everyone.

    The passages that condemn homosexuality are pretty weak to me.

    I'd say yes; that horror inflicted, and then providing( or triggering) a collective Conscience on such a grand scale.
