What's Your Compass?

I was surprised to learn that the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders," trumps the Bible when it comes to moral issues surrounding LGBTQ behavior. So says Oliver Thomas, a retired Baptist minister, in an opinion piece appearing in The USA Today, April 29, 2019. Mr. Thomas does not believe in the inerrancy of Scripture and proceeds to build a lame case against it. Two things that bothered me the most: First, is the use of his Baptist credentials to authenticate his errant claims and second, facts do not seem to get in the way of his essay. "Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened." ( Sir Winston Churchill) Mr. Thomas is one such person.
