Thought this might stir up a conversation….

But early in the morning he arrived again in the temple area, and all the people started coming to him, and he sat down and taught them. Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a man who had been caught in an homosexual act and made him stand in the middle.

They said to him, “Teacher, this man was caught in the very act of homosexuality. Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such men. So what do you say?”

They said this to test him, so that they could have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger. But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at him.”

Again he bent down and wrote on the ground. And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the elders. So he was left alone with the man before him. Then Jesus straightened up and said to him, “Man, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

He replied, “No one, sir.” Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, (and) from now on do not sin any more.”
