We'll marry our fortunes together....

I should probably replace what I just posted with this:

Walter Brueggemann: As you know the prophets are largely focused on economic questions, but I suppose that the way I would transpose that is to say that the prophets are concerned with the way in which the powerful take advantage of the vulnerable. When you transpose that into these questions, then obviously gays and lesbians are the vulnerable and the very loud heterosexual community is as exploitative as any of the people that the prophets critiqued. Plus, on sexuality questions you have this tremendous claim of virtue and morality on the heterosexual side, which of course makes heterosexual ideology much more heavy-handed.

Thought Criminal has the link to the rest of the interview.  It's undoubtedly all worth reading.

  1. Thanks for the link to TC. Brueggemann's responses in the interview are excellent.
