Abstract

A homosexual reading of biblical texts involves the rereading and re-examining of those passages that condemn homosexuals. It is the questioning of traditional interpretation of these passages and the identification of heterosexism and homophobia of biblical scholars. Homosexual persons are searching for positive links between the Bible and homosexuality. In this article, two models, namely the purity and family systems set as examples of a theology of inclusion and resistance, are illustrated by the story of the Canaanite woman. She places herself outside the patriarchal structures by being unclean, silent and passive. Although, this woman is framed by culture and doctrine, she is resisting exclusivity from the community of believers.
