Rabbi Joel Roth "acknowledges that homosexuality cannot be considered inherently abominable, but asserts that the Torah simply attributes the quality of abominableness to homosexuality, placing the prohibition beyond the reach of any extra-legal concerns that would favour its abandonment." (201) By relying on the influence of the text, Roth asserts that Jewish law cannot change or adapt to accommodate respect for homosexuality because its legal wrongness remains squarely based on halakhic texts.
