Homosexuality Is Not In Order?

I've finished reading Jack Rogers' Jesus, The Bible, and Homosexuality two weeks ago and yet I'm not convinced that modern homosexuality is acceptable or unknown to the biblical authors.

Rogers was a moderator of the Presbyterian churches in the USA. We shared the same position once before his shift. The book is his shared wisdom and experience of his change of mind. He is still a heterosexual though.

Now he is OK with ordaining homosexual ministers and giving blessing to same-sex marriages.

He is trying hard in the book to present his case, but the extensive works done by Richard Hays and Anthony Thiselton on the disputed biblical passages (eg. Romans 1) are grpping them from being obscured by Rogers' reading. I'll blog more on the NT's disputed passages.
