The great strength of the position concerning historical Bible language translation/interpretation that I have previously outlined is that it guards against attempts to force the acceptance of a particular agenda.
In dismissing "the established view" you are actually dismissing the consensus of academic research and textural criticism that has accrued from centuries of such work.
You mention agenda. Your agenda is obviously the defence and promotion of homosexuality. In order to do this you are obliged to cast doubt upon the reliability of the Bible and its teaching, and thus undermine its acceptance, by Christians, as being God's revelation to us.
Thankfully, for "ordinary" Christians (the majority of us), God's "guiding hand" is seen in the consensus of today's biblical scholarship and is our safeguard.
