Camped under Mount Sinai, Moses gave the Israelite slaves the Torah of their God, and after wandering in the desert for 40 years, they went to live in what is now known as Israel, which they believe is God's gift to them. God will not change the Torah and will not give another Torah. Given the unambiguous nature of the biblical attitude toward homosexuality, however, such a reconciliation is not possible.
