Podcast: The Bible, History and Homosexuality

Original Air Date: April 23, 2012

Many conservatives and religious fundamentalists condemn homosexuality based upon their literal reading of Scripture and the “Word.” But which Scripture are they referring to, which “version” of the Bible, and which “Word” – the Oral Word that existed well before the written Word? In this broadcast we take on what conservatives and fundamentalist fear most – the years of scholarship that reveal Scripture and the “Word” to be the product of an “evolutionary” process over the course of 2000 years, and the apparent absurdity of attempting to read the Bible literally, as if it fell out of the sky in Elizabethan English.
