You illustrate my point well. Jesus didn't mention it or talk about it, yet somehow homosexuality becomes a critical topic of conversation, here as it does elsewhere. I made no argument as to whether it was wrong or right... just that Jesus didn't mention it. Yet it is such a passionate issue for so many Christians in some quarters! When Christianity is about following the teachings of Christ, hypothesising on an issue that Christ didn't consider worth mentioning seems somewhat pointless. These additional issues are more culturally motivated than anything else.
