I'm learning more about religion and relationships
right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is:how can a relationship work when the have different religions?. As I was reading in my Google Reader, a news item "Cafeteria Religion,"caught my attention because the title made me look to it. Also I found it weird how they put the title. I wanted to find out why they put cafeteria religion.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that Lindsay wants to change her religion to Jew but since she has a partner of the same sex she can't be a good Jew since Jews don't really accept that type of relationships. Also it talks about Christianity and how they haven't made a clear statement whether for them it's acceptable or not.
I think this is just based on the religion and what they believe in because there is other people that aren't very religious therefore they don't all follow this rules. Also I believe that God made us all equal so we shouldn't discriminate any one because of who they like.
So for Lindsay to think she can simultaneously be a good lesbian and a good Jew is stretching things a bit. The Hebrew Scriptures are clear in their rejection of any same-sex relationships and activities. The main passages (Genesis 18:20-19:29; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; and Judges 19:1-21:25) leave no room for doubt here.
Christianity too is clear in its denunciation of homosexuality. Both religions affirm that God’s intentions for human sexuality are that of heterosexual marriage – full stop. There are no other avenues permitted in the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.
