If you’re gay, it might be tempting to point out that a bunch of biblical characters were also homosexual. But it’s much more productive to talk about how God relates to everyone. And the answer is, of course, that he loves everyone equally, regardless of their sexual orientation.
Daniel and his friends, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, were employed in governmental positions in the Babylonian court. The king of Babylon routinely drafted the best and brightest conquered peoples into his workforce. The Bible mentions that these men were made eunuchs. But the word used in the Hebrew scriptures for this is chesed v’rachamim (mercy and love). It doesn’t mean sexual love; it means kindness and compassion, which can also be interpreted as physical affection.
But even if you assume that the relationship between Daniel and Ashpenaz was sexual, the fact remains that they were both eunuchs. And since they could not physically consummate their love, it would have been impossible for them to have sex. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that homosexuals are not loved by God. Jesus himself referred to some eunuchs as sons of God in Matthew 19:12.
Daniel Radcliffe is the perfect example of a man who embraces all aspects of his personality and multiple identities. His teetotal lifestyle, his romantic ties with Kill Your Darlings co-star Erin Darke, and the flamboyant way in which he wears pink have led some to conclude that he is a homosexual. However, he has always denied the rumors.
