Eugene Volokh asks, "So what's the problem with lesbianism?" One of his points is that
4. This leads us to the Bible. The Bible does, it seems to me, contain text that prohibits male homosexuality -- but I haven't seen any verses that prohibit lesbianism. I may well be missing something; if there are verses that touch on this, please let me know. But at this point, I really don't see any specifically scriptural objection to lesbianism.Without getting further into the discussion, let me point out Romans chapter 1, particularly verses 24 through 27:
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen.Ok, to get slightly further into the dicsussion, I don't think it's the government's place to enforce morality. Is homosexuality a sin? Yes. But so is lying, and I don't think there ought to be a law against lying. If you are just looking for an excuse to beat up on Christians, then disapproval of homosexuality is the cause du jour; fine. But if you really want to understand what the Bible says about mankind, I wouldn't focus on this one issue. Everyone is a sinner, and everyone is saved by God's love, mercy, and grace.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
