Does “love” really have no labels? So does it matter how we define “love”? Does this mean gender, race, religion, age, etc., don’t matter at all? Does “love” = “sex” or include “sex” in some of these statements? If so, does “love” really have “no age” either? Does “love” have no number? Does “love” have no species? Is a same-sex family really “no different than any other family”? And how does one come to all these conclusions–feelings? Anatomy? Popular opinion? If someone’s “religion” disagrees with these conclusions are they and their religion therefore UN-loving? Oh, and if a person agreed that love is the most wonderful thing of all, and that people of every color, gender, religion, nationality, etc., should absolutely love one another, would he or she be UN-loving if he or she believed some sexual choices are sinful? And would it be loving to affirm all sexual choices as equally valid if some of those choices were dangerous or unhealthy? If love has no religion, but all major religions agreed that some sexual choices are sinful, does that mean all major religions are UN-loving?

Dr. Gagnon’s website is full of great research and reading material. Here’s a video featuring Dr. Gagnon: Dr. Robert Gagnon, What Does the Bible Teach About Homosexuality? S3E2 from Pure Passion on Vimeo.
