Humans tend to talk about the same stuff over and over again. Not much new since writing was invented.I agree, but see this debate from a slightly different light. It's okay to eat shellfish, use a steak knife to spread butter, and a lot of other stuff, and that's the picking and choosing I see that comes down to "interpretation."If it's okay to see those kinds of things in a different light, then it's okay to see same gender pairings and abortion in a different light.Lawrence's position leads to some difficult conclusions, but there is an integrity to his approach I can follow. I find the various religious schools of thought to be arbitrary in what they say is now okay, and what still isn't.My two cents, faith is good, but religion is corrupt. Faith is a spiritual bond with the universe, religion is an institution that promotes its own hierarchy by instilling cultural rules that have to be followed so, according to them, the individual will be on the big guy's good side when they die.Faith doesn't need interpretation by some for the many. It's as personal as eye color and disposition.
