Very well written article! I plan on re-reading it and fact-checking some of the terminology.
I have always planned to look further into the debate on homosexual immorality in the Bible and this is a great start.
I would, however, question your conclusion. God has many times ordained the death of many innocent beings including animals. Think Noah’s Ark.
I am open to interpretation and a scholarly explanation of archaic languages and so I wonder whether you have an explanation for the obvious inconsistencies. Xenophobia is prevalent in most sacred texts but it has been brushed off in the Bible due to commands of 'loving your neighbor.’
Scholars explain, however, that the term 'neighbor' does not extend far. Most certainly not to members of other nations.
I look forward to your response.
