In "Scripture picking" (Forum, March 27), Shawn Scott noted the incongruity (even hypocrisy) of Mormons and Christians dissing the Apostle Paul's instruction to keep women silent in church, but accepting as the word of god his disapproval of homosexuals. Scott has a point.
More stunning is the Christian accusation that advocates for gay marriage undermine the "traditional" definition of marriage. Really? Even more than Christians themselves?
Whether you quote Paul or Leviticus, the son of God himself had nothing to say on homosexuality. One subject Jesus was adamant about, and repeatedly, was the ban on divorce. Paul may be commentary; Jesus is the real word.
