marriage equality: very illuminating piece from a biblical scholar on what the bible actually says...

Spoiler: Christian groups are deceiving the population about what their favourite text actually says about same-sex relationships.

The extreme cognitive dissonance of these religious lobby groups is a sight to behold: on the one hand asserting their righteousness and commitment to Christian values, and on the other using all manner of harmful deceptions, distortions and outright lies in this debate - never for a moment realising the fatal inconsistency in their attempted moralising.

They want and expect society to see them as the keepers of essential societal 'values', but their hypocrisy on this issue, and extremely distasteful behaviour on many others has, I think, many more of us seeing them for what they really are: harmful, archaic imposters.
