On today’s Fresh Air, Pastor Jennifer Knust suggests the Bible shouldn’t be used as a guidebook for marriage or sexuality because passages related to sex are more complex and nuanced than popular culture has led us to believe: "Whatever the Bible says about homoerotic-sexual intimacy is folded within a very large Biblical conversation about sexuality and gender in general.
