A rewriting of the substance of Tuesday's column on the interpretation of 1 Corinthians 6:9 and 1 Timothy 1:10, with gratitude to readers for helpful feedback.

Two texts in Leviticus, and complexities related to what Christians are to make of them today.

An interpretation of the Sodom (and Gibeah) stories, so fatefully destructive in forming historic Christian attitudes on the LGBT issue. 

How traditionalists on the LGBT issue connect the biblical dots, and how not to argue against them.

Taking biblical inspiration and authority seriously also requires humbly acknowledging a long history of Christian fights over “what the Bible says.”

If this is where you get off the bus on this journey through the LGBT issue, here are seven things you and all of us can do. 

Six options for how a church responds to the arrival of gay couples in its midst. 

How even ardent traditionalists now (sometimes) acknowledge the existence of gay Christians.
