Debates about homosexuality are based on what people think the Bible says about the subject – but is what we’ve been taught really what the Bible says?

I agree with Bishop Robinson's conclusions, but the presentation is terrible for something titled, "What the Bible Says..." Really? He can't remember whether Lot has one or two daughters, attributes a saying commonly attributed to Jesus to Paul--the "be in the world but not of the world" statement (which is a stretch even when crediting Jesus).
It sounds throughout like Robinson either read the Bible a long time ago and not since, or he's leaning on someone else's research and never read the Bible.
The tragedy in this is that opponents may use his errors to discredit his points. I am not an opponent.
I have been doing a lot of searching lately and although I still haven't come to terms with exactly what I believe, this book sure helped.
Gene Robinson gives some great things to consider. I think the church really needs to examine a response to some of his thoughts.
