One thought on “Bible and Archaeology Fest 2010

  1. -J. Harold Ellens “Homosexuality in the Bible: The Case of
    David and Jonathan”
    –I'm glad I won't be there to see this one. Ellens trots out the now old and weary "the Bible doesn't really condemn modern, committed homosexual relationship" argument that is a stale as it is mistaken.
