Day Without a Gay

My friend send me this link for a Day without a Gay. It is sort of a work stoppage, but instead of doing nothing, the time is devoted to volunteer efforts.  http://daywithoutagay.org/  Sounds like an interesting project capable of doing much good.  Not only by the volunteer work, bt also by the level of visibility it can generate.  We know that people are often more likely to be supportive of GLBT people when they[Read More…]

Return of the QueerLook Podcast coming soon!

So, well before there was the QLATB blog, there was a podcast called Queer Look at the Bible (QueerLook for short), and it is time to begin producing the podcast! So within the next few weeks, I’m going to get back to a weekly podcast. If you want to check out the older podcasts: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=162657208

The Bible and Religion

…forget rocks and dogs for a bit… I mean, what is it that we expect to find in scripture? What do we expect it to tell us? What are we missing without it?

A Question of Love

Not a long post today, although I owe you one.  Found this video clip of Keith Olberman’s commentary about the election and Prop 8 in California.  He expresses some of the ideas I have so eloquently.  Namely, that as recently as 1967, our next president’s parents would not have been allowed to marry in 1/3 of the states in our country because it was illegal for a black and a white to marry.  As recent as[Read More…]

Post Election Thoughts

This is more of a rambling post than most of my posts- though you might think they are all rambling.   And most likely this post is less geared towards this Queer Look at the Bible blog, but hopefully as I write, it won’t seem that disconnected- unless I run out of steam or decide I’m not sure what I am saying. As much as it was exciting to see Obama win, it was disappointing[Read More…]

The Bible Tells Me So… is BS!

So often, people are turned off by religion, and by the Bible, because it (possibly both) are expressed as being “the Word of God,” or as “God said…” This is a real problem, because it enables men and women to turn over all responsibility to that God.  I remember as a kid, it was easy to try and use the excuse, that because someone told me to.  And my parent’s comeback was always, if they[Read More…]

Why Even Atheists should Care about the Bible

Why Even Atheists should Care about the Bible

  Even atheists should care about the Bible.  Care about does not mean believe in or support or follow, but to ignore how influential it is in today’s culture is a bit like sticking your head in the sand.   Queer Look at the Bible was originally (and will return to be) a podcast I began back in 2006.  For a variety of reasons, I stopped adding episodes, and it has sat, dormant since then.[Read More…]

Why I Use the Lectionary

Why I Use the Lectionary

So, I  want to say something about why I’m using the lectionary.  First of all the lectionary, is a set of prescribed scripture readings that follow a three year calendar, and were intended to be used by all churches.  Theoretically, people who attend a Catholic service, and a Methodist service and an Episcopalian service on any particular Sunday, would all hear a sermon based upon the same scriptures.  Now, in reality, this doesn’t happen exactly-[Read More…]

Queer Look at the Bible

Queer Look at the Bible

  A number of years ago, I produced a news magazine program on the local public access cable station called “The Gay Nineties.” Almost every time I was at the station to edit, there would be some bible thumper in the studio, taping their sunday sermon and ranting on about homosexuals and other deviants.  One evening, taking a break from the editing booth, I sat down next to a woman waiting to get into the[Read More…]
