“Newsweek” or “Newsweak?”

by Steve Higginbotham

The December 15, 2008 issue of “Newsweek” magazine attempts to support “homosexual marriage” by appealing to Scripture. Yes, you read that correctly. In the current issue, the magazine cover reads, “The Religious Case For Gay Marriage.” Under the cover of “Our Mutual Joy,” Newsweek attempts to formulate an argument from the Bible to support homosexual marriage. Below are the bulk of the arguments made, and a brief response.

Newsweek Exhibit A – Why should one look to the Bible to define marriage. The Bible says that Abraham had a child by his wife’s servant. Jacob fathered children by four women. And shall we speak of David and Solomon? No sensible modern person wants marriage to look, in it’s particulars, like what many people practiced in Bible times.

Defense – It is a gross misapplication and misunderstanding of the Bible to site an action recorded therein, and then assume that the action has divine approval. The Bible is a record of inspired teaching as well as uninspired actions.
