Biblical Commissions "Opens" Toward Homosexuality - Despite Disclaimers
Murray identifies the trick used in the document. It consists in one-sidedly discussing contemporary opinions which reject the biblical teachings on homosexuality.
He notices that the study quotes a long list of derogatory qualifications of Biblical teaching which is called “archaic”, “historically conditioned”, “outdated”, lacking a “new and more adequate understanding of the human person.”
Officially, collaborators of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith claimed that the text offers "no opening" for homosexual activity,
In reality, Murray points out that "modern justifications" of homosexual fornication get considerable space while the traditional teachings receives only "perfunctory mention.”
As a matter of fact, the study invites consideration of whether the truths taught by the Bible can "change" over time.
"Why? Because ecclesiastics honor modern errors conferring on them a patina of legitimacy, labeling these errors as current ‘science’.”
