Missing Something From St. Paul?

Yes, indeed, St. Paul has been censored by the new Lectionary's editors. 

This is what's been eliminated from the readings of last week:

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct. 29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.

32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but also approve those who practice them

Hmmm.  Not only did St Paul clearly condemn practicing queers--he also nailed down the rest of their personalities.

Simply un-PC, written by an old dead white guy (Jew, actually.)  Delenda est.
