S'ok, I'm totally chilled
There was no indication that it was humour. It came across as a serious reply in a flow of serious replies.
Maybe it would have helped if you'd added an emotican like
Shelby:It's been a few years since I poured over those transcripts, but I don't recall anything that vaguely suggested he was of homosexual or bisexual orientation.
You asked, with this thread:
Could C T Russell been gay and hid behind a sexless mariage?
The simple answer is "Yes". Sure, he could have.
However, you can't assume either way, because you have no evidence either way; hence "reasonable assumptions" are out of the window.
Bottom line: you just don't know, and to declare otherwise would be entirely idle speculation, closely akin to scraping the bottom of the barrel.
On another point that you raised:
If he claimed to be God's spokes person we have a right to poke around and see if he meets the "Bible" guidelines as far as "bible" morals are concerned,, for we all know what the bible says about sex with the same sex.
