Another Tavis Smiley Gem: with James Forbes pastor of Riverside Church

Forbes, author of "Whose Religion" answers Tavis' questions with nuggets of wisdom:

About gays and lesbians:

What makes an oak and an elm different or one right and one wrong?

But I know what the Bible says.

It also says take a concubine, take your brother's wife? You can't pretend the bible doesn't have human input.

But it's the word of God?

God doesn't talk in perfect Elizabethan English ... The bible reflects different communities who had different standards even with each other.

And at the end of a discussion on what should Christians think about health care reform:

If your religion doesn't push you to The Golden Rule, then something is wrong with your religion.
