In anticipation of the release of Justice Calls (you can pre-order it here), I’m sharing an excerpt a day. Today’s is from Barbara K. Lundblad, Joe R. Engle Professor of Preaching Emerita at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York.
“Genesis 2 is about human relationship more than human anatomy. While the text doesn’t affirm gay marriage, it does affirm the goodness of human companionship and the formation of new families. Gay marriage will never damage marriage as much as the infidelity of politicians who have condemned gay marriage. ‘What makes a relationship moral?’ It’s not the gender of the partners, but the faithfulness and love the partners have for each other.”
