Certainly no one has been able to cite any Bible translation, ancient Bible text, or Judo-Christian tradition that places in question the Bible's many condemnations of all homosexual behavior.

We're going to have to agree to disagree with that. I don't think that the Bible does, specifically, address homosexuality at all.

The Bible irrefutably condemns all homosexual acts in the plainest of terms, repeatedly, and in both Testaments.

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9(NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
Jude 1:6-7 (NASB)- And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

David, you still haven't answered my simple question: is the bible to be taken completely literally, or are some parts figurative?

So, not for RevKen:

What do you say guys, this man seems to struggle quite hard with control-issues. He wants to contro me and other?

Why? I don't know. I can't get in dialogue with him, so I am guessing, and I guess he has a lot of insecurity inside himself.

NoQ struggles.

Lord of Lords, I pray for him. Let Your Will happen to him. Amen

RevKen struggles with a lot of other things as well, evilness...

Galatians 5,19.21:

"The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God."

Lord, I lay RevKen in Your hands. Let Your will happen to him. Amen

scientists-may-have-finally-un locked-puzzle-of-why-people-ar e-gay
Long thought to have some sort of hereditary link, a group of scientists suggested Tuesday that homosexuality is linked to epi-marks — extra layers of information that control how certain genes are expressed. These epi-marks are usually, but not always, "erased" between generations. In homosexuals, these epi-marks aren't erased — they're passed from father-to-daughter or mother-to-son, explains William Rice, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California Santa Barbara and lead author of the study.
Hence a genetic mistake.

Gosh, MMM!
Seems, from what you have written above, that it is YOU trying to mischaracterize and control me, instead of the other way around.
Then, you try to enlist the support of everybody else, including the Lord Himself, to be on your side in this transformative effort.
Its OK, MMM. Let your prayers go on behalf of those who cannot understand the Teachings of Christ Jesus. And remember to say some on your own behalf to help you thicken your skin a bit. Otherwise, you are never going to get any reasonable sense of humor about the perceived insults, even if they are mostly just imagined. And, without a bit of self-deprecating humor, you aren't going to have much success with invitations to dialogue.
Nobody gets much incentive to talk with a person who is insulted by anything and everything that is said. That is where you are at present. So, toughen it up a bit, MMM, and join the conversation instead of standing on the outside constantly complaining about getting no respect.
Either that or go to Hollywood and audition for a stand-in for Rodney Dangerfield.
Oh, and thanks for the Blessings. I can always appreciate and will hope to accept all the help I can get from Christ Jesus.
Yours truly,
Rev. Ken
Not for RevKen:

I write somthing, then he responds to me and addresses his message to MMM. Who's that?

Has anybody seen some MMM around here?

Maybe he is a little bit confused or he is evil. I don't know.

All the same, Lord, I lay him in Your hands. Amen.
