Is anyone else shocked by this phrase and the definition below?
A link to the news story is below. The phrase ‘lesbian bishop’ would have been shocking a year ago, I guess.
A Baptist college president in Nashville said Tuesday evening that people should not use “idolatry of the Bible” to discriminate against homosexuals.
“It’s sad that people use religion and idolatry of the Bible to demoralize same-gender-loving people,” American Baptist College President Forrest Harris said in response to criticism involving the decision to allow a lesbian bishop to speak there.
**What does Harris define as “idolatry of the Bible?”
“When people say (the Bible) is synonymous with God and the truth,” he said. “We can’t be guided and dictated by a first-century world view.”***
