Is Gay Sex A Sin?

Apparently last week Archbishop Justin Welby had difficulty giving a definitive view on this question. Here is one report on his encounter with Alistair Campbell. Here are three observations.

1)   The experience of Tim Farron, the former Liberal Democrat leader earlier in the year surely gives a salutary warning here. In equivocating and adopting a “ducking and weaving” approach to this question regarding gay sex, you always are set for a “lose, lose” outcome. Those of a morally liberal bent do not respect you because of your lack of conviction. Those with conservative biblical convictions despair because they can’t understand how you can equivocate on an issue where the bible is unequivocal.

2)   The Bible is very straight on this matter. Sex outside marriage is wrong whether that be sex with another person whilst married, sex before marriage, sex with a person of the same-sex or sex with animals. Any sex outside the marriage is wrong, damaging to human beings and, above all, an offence to God. Marriage should be honoured by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral (Heb. 13:4) seems pretty clear.

3)   In taking the line Justin Welby does, he does much service to Islam. There are many in the West who are despondent about the state of our society, with its moral chaos, infidelity and general moral madness. This is particularly the case with women. When they hear the Anglican church regurgitating such stuff like Mr Welby does here they feel that Christianity provides no solid moral framework. As a result they look elsewhere. They see Islam with all of its strictures as a safe place to go where they can seek moral purity. This is the reason why so many, particularly women in the West, turn to Islam.

So why do it Archbishop? You achieve nothing and you deny the faith you profess. Lives are harmed by your the lack of direction which you give. Please think about what you are doing.
