Slaves, Women, and Homosexuals: Exploring the Hermeneutics of Cultural Analysis
William J. Webb's Slaves, Women & Homosexuals: A Review Article — Southern Equip
Over the past few decades, some Christians have begun to compare the legitimization of homosexuality and the legalization of same sex marriage with earlier struggles in our society over slavery or the status and role of women in the church and society. One of the more recent examples of this argument can be found in an article published in the Washington Post by Adam Hamilton , the well known and influential senior pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. After all, the argument goes, opposition to homosexuality and same sex marriage is passing away, and before too many more years we will all be shocked — and even embarrassed — that we opposed it. Whatever biblical affirmations one may find concerning slavery or prohibitions concerning women or homosexual behavior are therefore it is argued culturally bound and should be set aside for a more enlightened and inclusive view.
