This paper challenge to raise the understanding that “the Bible is anti LGBT”. Hermeneutical examination of the six passages or texts shows that in the Bible there are anti-LGBT texts, but there are also pro-LGBT texts. Then the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, often used as “proof” that the Bible is anti-LGBT, can also be interpreted as opposites. Finally there is a hermeneutical discussion about the relationship of religion and science, culture and human rights, and concrete proposals regarding the pastoral actions of the church against LGBT people. Keywords: Hermeneutics, Sola Scriptura Plus, anti-LGBT texts, pro-LGBT texts, religion/theology, science/science, human rights, and restriction.
