Was King David Gay?

1 Samuel 20:16-17
16And Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying,[c] "May the LORD take vengeance on David's enemies." 17And Jonathan made David swear again by his love for him, for he loved him as he loved his own soul.

ok so i don't think David is gay but man for all the homophobes out there this is the "man after God's own heart" LOVING another guy.

we discussed this tonight at youth and i was surprised how few folks felt like the relationship and Johnathan seemed strange in the chapter more than anything we have read so far in 1 Samuel. Andy did a good job leading the discussion, good job pushing us towards community.
so yeah, thats it for tonight.
