"We both agree that adultery is still wrong; it’s just the penalty for adultery that has changed. It’s the same with homosexual practice." Uh...why? Nowhere in the Bible does it say that the death penalty for either adultery or homosexuality is wrong. Jesus may not have commanded the adulteress to be stoned, but he wasn't in a position to do so, not being a Levite priest -- he would have violated the Law had he rendered judgment like a priest. There's really no reason to think that a Christian theocracy would or should differ in the penalties prescribed for sexual sins from the Law of Moses. What has happened is that our disgust toward these sins has lessened over time, so that we don't see them for the socially destructive sins they are.

Seriously??
You HAVE heard of the New Testament, right?

The Jewish leaders who brought the woman to Jesus also forgot to bring something else - the man.

The law (Leviticus 20:10) states, "If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death." Jesus' response to the woman is just as much a rebuke of the "leaders" who perverted the law and allowed the man to escape punishment. Leviticus 20 lists a range of sexual sins outside of monogamous heterosexual marriage. Jesus does not change the law, but expresses this greater law, "Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?" (Ezekiel 18:23).

Thank you. That no-so-minor point doesn't get mentioned enough.

Even today, the Muslims kill only the woman. That is because all the judges are men.

Fresh off his attack on America’s gun control laws, Piers Morgan set his sights on another set of laws that trouble him, the laws of Moses and the Bible. But before he called for an amendment to the Bible to recognize “gay rights,” Morgan actually asked his guest, Pastor Rick Warren, a very fair question, and Warren stumbled in his answer.

Of course, Morgan’s timing could not have been worse. After all, this was a Christmas Eve interview with a Christian leader, and Morgan is not exactly riding a wave of popularity. And to compare the Bible to the Constitution shows...
