Many good refutations of the anti-homosexual Clobber Passages have been published on the internet as well as in hard cover. But my intuition was that evangelicals and fundamentalists would find them inadequate because their view of scripture is frequently different from the conservative view.
Conservatives used to invoke a long list of allegedly anti-homosexual verses. As time has gone by, many have been dropped because they are obviously irrelevant, in particular verses referring to temple prostitution (1 Kings 14:24; 1 Kings 15:12; 1 Kings 22:46; 2 Kings 23:7), and to male and female prostitution (Deuteronomy 23:18).
I will be responding to the Clobber Passages in the weeks and months to come. When I post on one of the passages, I will list it here for your convenience.
