No exegetical evidence presented!!

The author falls into the trap of putting experience at the same level as scripture which is unacceptable. Absolutely no exegetical evidence is given to support his position. It would be better to read and study Robert A. J. Gagnon's exegetical work on homosexual practice published by Abingdon. It takes a more serious approach to scripture.

Why the heading "Homosexuality and the Church"?

I don't understand the purpose of the heading "Homosexuality and the Church" on this article. I can see how the subject of the article speaks to that issue, but the subject of the article is far larger than the issue of homosexuality. I would say that the article addresses something foundational and the issue of homosexuality is subordinate. The reference to homosexualiy in the heading confuses this. Subsequently, the article makes no outright mention of homosexuality, although the heading makes it clear that the editor is leading the audience to read between the lines and draw conclusions.
