Answering Pro-Gay Theology

Argument: Jesus said nothing about homosexuality.

Response: The idea, of course, is that if Jesus did not specifically forbid a behavior, then the behavior must not have been important to Him. The argument also assumes that if Jesus was not manifestly concerned about something, we shouldn’t be either. Are we really to believe that Jesus didn’t care about wife-beating or incest just because He said nothing about them? There are any number of behaviors Jesus did not mention by name; surely we don’t condone them for that reason alone. Ultimately, Christ’s silence on homosexuality in no way negates the very specific prohibitions against it which appear elsewhere in both the Old and New Testaments.
