Lesbians, Leviticus, & Eunuchs, Oh My!—Imago Gei

Lesbians, Leviticus, & Eunuchs, Oh My!—Imago Gei

I finish out this series on the Imago Gei podcast about queer theology with professor Matthew Korpman. We discuss the absence of women in the Levitical laws against homosexuality, the broad category of sexually divergent people that eunuchs encompass, and a more inclusive theology that holds an all-embracing view of LGBTQ people in the history of faith.

"I am so sick and tired of people saying that Leviticus 18 and 22 or 20:13 have to do with homosexuality because homosexuality has a definition. It is a sexual orientation that has to involve both sexes, and it has to involve much more than sex, a whole orientation, a whole sensibility. You can be homosexual and never actually have sex."
