Rabbi points out Scripture must be interpreted, not literalized

Rabbi Steven Greenberg, the first openly homosexual orthodox rabbi, said last Sunday on a sermon at St. Stephen Episcopal Church that "No one can say, ‘It says in the Scripture,' to ground any policy," in what's been seen as a disqualification of born again Christians who take the Bible as literal word. And in fact, who would be better than a rabbi to offer the best Biblical interpretation?. Greenberg added that while he wasn't saying that the Bible is not the revealed word of God, according to Jewish tradition God gave that word to man and entrusted him to decipher it. Whole news on The Columbus Dispatch and Pink News.
