God doesn’t have a problem with same-sex partnerships

Reader differs on interpretation of bible verses about marriage

Re: Plenty of proof God disproves of gay marriage (Letters, Aug. 24)

For God’s opinion on same sex relationships, your reader suggests we read her cherry-picked biblical selections.

I have done that and I do not see that the Bible coincides with her interpretation.

In this age of enlightenment, the harsh biblical directives on marriage would not result in the healthy, loving and equal partnership one aspires to.

As for the quote about only ‘one husband and one wife’, King David had not only many wives, but also many concubines and fathered 13 children.

There is no record of God having a problem with that.
