Reliability of the Bible on moral questions

A prior post discussed Dan Savage's comment regarding "bullshit in the Bible" and subsequent apology.  I love this quote by Savage on the issue of the realiability of the Bible on moral questions:
“We ignore what the Bible says about slavery because the Bible got slavery wrong. …If the Bible got the easiest moral question that humanity has ever faced wrong, ... [w]hat are the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? 100 percent.”
