Question: "What does the Bible say about bisexuality? " Answer: The Bible nowhere directly mentions bisexuality.

However, it is clear from the Bible's denunciations of homosexuality that bisexuality would also be considered sinful.

And of course saying "public drunkenness" is pretty redundant after 11 a.m. And yet let a midsize city try to add sexual orientation to its municipal nondiscrimination policy or a high school senior bring a same-gender date to prom, and you would think it was the apocalypse.

The Bible doesn't state that one sin is greater than another, but you wouldn't know that by counting the number of comments that quote Scripture on news stories about the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community.

These truths apply equally to bisexuals and to homosexuals.

Grand Rapids, Michigan (CNN) -- My partner and I recently took our mothers to Las Vegas for a week for Mother's Day.

It's not our favorite city, but for a pair of 60-somethings who can sit at the penny slot machines for hours, it was heaven. By the end of our trip, the four of us had seen just about everything you would expect to see in a place nicknamed Sin City -- except for faith-based protesters.

Not long ago, someone asked me how long I've been dealing with same-sex attractions.

I was surprised to find a big, round number before me: 20 years.

I love the Bible, and stake my life in the biblical witness, and it is that which calls me to the struggle for full inclusion of gay people and their gifts. That being the case, it is impossible for me to accept same-sex marriage, which legitimizes a sinful behavior.
