Abraham and Jesus.

Thank you, Andrew Sullivan, for a positive discussion of C.A. Tripp's book about Abraham Lincoln and the evidence that he was probably a gay man [Against the Current, March 1]. Sullivan's answers to the question "Does it matter?" are sound. But the same reasons apply to Theodore W. Jennings Jr.'s book The Man Jesus Loved: Homoerotic Narratives From the New Testament. If one accepts scriptural writings as evidence, there seems to be a very powerful case for a gay Jesus, a case that seems to be obviously discernible, especially to gay men. Of course it matters!
