Gwyneth's GOOP gets serious

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop website and newsletter are tackling the hot button topic of homosexuality. Gwyneth wants to know, what exactly does the Bible say about being gay?

Gwyneth Paltrow's website Goop is taking a break from its usual talk of style, parenting and cooking to take a closer look at what the Bible says about being gay.

In a Goop post tiled Homosexuality in the Bible, Gwyneth Paltrow shares her point of view on the subject:

A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologizing for wishing death on gays from his facebook page. This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the bible. This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgement and separation in our society.

When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, "Two mommies? How lucky is she?!" What does it actually say in the bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?

Happy pride.
Love,

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop post goes on with guest pieces written about homosexuality in the Bible. The authors include a female Episcopalian priest, a Kabbalah scholar and author, a gay priest and more.

Does a celebrity opinion such as Gwyneth Paltrow's in Goop have any affect on your personal views?
