'7 Bible Quotes In Support Of Same Sex Relationships' Released By Arielle Scarcella And Matthew Vines

Posted: Updated:

Popular YouTube lesbian vlogger Arielle Scarcella is back with a slightly different video this week that takes a look at what the Bible really has to say about same-sex relationships.

In "7 Bible Quotes In Support Of Same Sex Relationships," Scarcella is joined by openly gay and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activist Matthew Vines for some expert perspective. Vines, who recently released his book God and the Gay Christian, is perhaps best known for the viral YouTube video "The Gay Debate: The Bible and Homosexuality."

"Sexual orientation is a pretty new concept," Vines notes in the above video. "Christians in the past tended to see same-sex behavior as a vice of excess like gluttony or drunkenness, not as a sexual orientation that can be expressed in loving, committed ways. So Christians don't have to reject their faith's tradition in order to accept same-sex relationships."

Check out the video above.
