sure. There can be a religious response to anything. Religion allows you to come up with anything you want, since you're basing your logic on non-real things.

However, to the point of the article, obviously in Christianity, the teachings are far, far, far more about being charitable to the poor and treating others well than it is about homosexuality. As for abortion, there is absolutely no textual evidence for an assertion that a zygote is human from the moment of conception, and in fact there's textual evidence to contradict that.

The argument against contraception is just obviously stupid. The argument is that foiling possible conception is against god's will, who wants us to be fruitful and multiply. If this were actually the case, then anyone not boning all the time to make as many babies as possible would be foiling god's will. It is much more obviously about control of sexuality, particularly female sexuality.

So, basically, any straightforward reading of Christian and Jewish texts would come to the conclusion that abortion is not a concern, and that homosexuality is only a concern along with a ton of other stuff that gets a pass.

Dude, that's my line!

In this day and age, religion should not be the basis of any public policy. Keep it to your self as a self regulating world view if you want but leave us out of it.
