Understanding the Bible and Homosexuality

Jesus never made any pronouncements about homosexuality. Or, if he did, those comments were never written in any of the Gospels. There are statements about homosexual acts in the Hebrew Scriptures (commonly known as the Old Testament) and in several of the letters of the Christian Scriptures (commonly known as the New Testament) that condemn homosexual acts. None of those passages refers to a mature, committed love relationship between people of the same gender.
