In this present age of darkness, the counter-argument offered by those who wish to change the moral of the story is often to scream “Fundamentalist!” or “You don’t understand the context!” Usually some variation, anything to change the subject.
Of course, error exists on all sides of an argument. In our present fallen state, it’s impossible to avoid agendas. Nobody’s perfect. That being said, some things are so stark, so glaringly obvious, that even an ignoramus who defends the time-honored position can count himself on the side of the angels.
The glorification of sodomy is one such issue. Now we understand that the collapse of identity onto activity is the first mistake which allows — nay, necessitates — the normalization of this particular vice. I dare say that most don’t see this — regardless of which side of the argument they find themselves. If it’s one thing that we here at Monomakhos have tried to understand, it’s that the human being (who is in the image of God) is more than the sum of his parts. He is certainly more than his sins. And sin can never be an identity. The equation of “Gay = race/gender therefore I am” is false on its face. It is for this reason that we reject the entire concept of “gayness” or homosexuality for that matter. There is only sin and virtue.
Regardless, it is the inability to see this that brings us to the present struggle. It’s a ingenious stratagem by the way in that it allows us to forgo timeless truths. For a better exposition on this, please watch the attached video.
