The LGBTQX “Christians” are still using the lame argument from silence.

At A compilation of everything Jesus said about homosexuality, the author just has a blank page.  Oh, how clever!  And remarkably fallacious!  She should be embarrassed at such terrible logic (and her commenters as well).  Of course the fraud, Kimberly Knight, is a member of the UCC.

The argument that Jesus never said anything about homosexual behavior (or abortion, etc.) fails on several levels. If a church leader uses it you can be confident that he or she is ignorant and/or malicious.

Short version: Yes, He did say something about it, but the theological Left ignores or distorts it as they do with many things about Jesus and his teachings.

Medium version: Arguing from silence is a logical fallacy, Jesus is God and part of the Trinity that inspired all scripture, He supported the Old Testament law to the last letter, the “red letters” weren’t silent on these topics in the sense that they reiterated what marriage and murder were, He emphasized many other important issues that these Leftist theologians completely ignore (Hell, his divinity, his exclusivity, etc.), He was equally “silent” on issues that these folks treat as having the utmost importance (capital punishment, war, welfare, universal health care, taxpayer-funded abortions, etc.), He didn’t specifically mention child abuse and other obvious sins though that wouldn’t justify them, and abortion and homosexual behavior simply weren’t hot topics for 1st century Jews. And the Gospels never claimed to include everything He said. John specifically notes that the whole world couldn’t hold it all! (John 21:25) And Jesus never said anything about the “sin” of criticizing homosexual behavior, so it must be OK!
