In other words, it ain't a problem, so why even address it? We might do well to remember that when we go looking for answers in the Bible. There's a lot of stuff that we need answers to that isn't addressed—because it wasn't relevant to them! But, we can extract an overarching theme from the biblical text (yes, Virginia, there is a metanarrative!). Based on that theme, we can make informed (and humbly held, I might add!) decisions. But always be aware that we might be wrong—but that we definitely are called to love those who differ from us. That is a non-negotiable—love covers over a multitude of sins.
