Pro-gay theology

rossuk
The list author says: "Pro-gay theology books: (these are mostly scholarly books, arranged in chronological order). I am a conservative, but I try to read the books from the "other" side."
Homosexuality and the Western Christian Tradition
Homosexuality and the Western Christian Tradition
"Pioneering British book that gives the "inhospitality" argument for Sodom (1955), Boswell uses this argument. He (Bailey) could be called the father of pro-gay biblical revisionists."

The ethics of sex (Thielicke Library)
"1964 discusses ethics of homosexualty on p269-292, he also refers to Bailey, there is some theological discussion. In Holben's book he comes under the "4. pastoral accommodation" heading (scale 1 to 6)."

"First pub 1976 Kansas City. (1993). Beacon Press. This is an early book. My main problem is that the theology is weak, a good heart sure."

"Now considered a classic pro-gay book. He discusses the scriptures on p 91-117, also p 335-353. He endorses the inhospitality argument for Sodom (based on Bailey). Argues that Paul thought the activities were beyond nature rather than against nature, i.e. Paul condemns homosexual acts by apparently heterosexual persons (i.e. perverts not inverts). Argues that arsenokoitai refers to prostitutes."
New Testament and Homosexuality
New Testament and Homosexuality
"1983. Proposes the exploitative argument, i.e. pederasty. He is very useful on the social background and he believes that Paul gets the word arsenokoitai from the Septuagint translation of Lev 18:22 and 20:13 (also the Hebrew mishkav zakur). I wish that more pro-gay apologists were so honest."

"Brooten is my favorite lesbian author. 1996 Academic treatment. Brooten gives a very useful annotated bibliography on Rom 1:26f and NT and homosexuality generally. Also has a detailed commentary on Rom 1:18-32 (p 215-302). She does rely too much on the misogyny argument, but that is not what Paul is talking about, even if that is what the Hellenistic society believed."
