Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 | Posted by: Selecia Jones- JAX FL | Full story: www.smh.com.au

Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

Not for RevKen:

RevKen doesn't follow the rules for discussion that I like; Respect and so on, and then I just drop to discuss with him.

No understanding of sexuality? How ignorantly arrogant.
Did you know that while shellfish are only 20% of the fish eaten TODAY, they are the cause of 80% of seafood poisoning? In Biblical times shellfish were considered a aphrodisiac. Except for the Hebrews. Please explain how they knew the danger without 'science and technology'? Especially since you didn't even know.
Your ignorance of the Laws is also exposed by not understanding the types and purposes of the Law.
Please explain how the Jewish culture is the longest surviving culture with the most profound impact today of any culture in history? Just as the Alien predicted on the mountain when He gave the Law.

A deceitful 'Rev'? On Sunday no less. Shame on you!
Two words, one of which you choose to remove;
-Surviving
-Significance
None of your examples meet those 'definitions'.
Or explain how the Alien Law giver predicted the outcome.

Because:
1. Saul is not god;
2. Marriage is a civil institution, and people, not god, make civil laws.

Everybody can convert to judaism as far as I know. How can it then be genetic?

Come on, David, it's a simple question:
Is the bible to be taken word-for-word literally, or are some parts figurative?

Since the Bible is a book written for Christians, and the internet sends its information out over the public airways, which are controlled by the Imperial Government, I really don't think that we are allowed to use the word Bible here. If we persist, we might be hunted down and killed by the Fair Speech Drones.

Rev. Ken
Kenny boy,

You have nothing from your 'grand' old culture, so you list by country? So? Nothing but gay twirl in an childish effort to deflect the fact that you have offered nothing of substance and only deceptive responses to counter. As a supposed 'rev' at that! Shamefully sacrilegious.

An encounter with an extra-terrestrial being resulted in an astounding, long-lasting impact on a tiny group of people. In spite of being scattered and assaulted over thousands of years they have survived and thrived. To this day, though surrounded by huge enemy countries, they exist as an economic and military mighty mouse.

You can't explain it. Admit it so you stop looking so idiotic.

Snicker smile.

Hardly. That was Robert's explanation of the question I posed. You agreed with him. You are the idiot.

Exodus 33:18-23 (NASB)
18 Then Moses said, "I pray You, show me Your glory!"
19 And He said, "I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion."
20 But He said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!"
21 Then the LORD said, "Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock;
22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.
23 "Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."

Note;
-Seeing God was a life-threatening danger.
-God used three forms of protection for the radiation;
Behind a rock
Shielded with His hand
Only allowed a partial view (back)

Exodus 34:29-35 (NASB)
29 It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him.
30 So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
31 Then Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the rulers in the congregation returned to him; and Moses spoke to them.
32 Afterward all the sons of Israel came near, and he commanded them to do everything that the LORD had spoken to him on Mount Sinai.
33 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face.
34 But whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with Him, he would take off the veil until he came out; and whenever he came out and spoke to the sons of Israel what he had been commanded,
35 the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.

Note; The effect of radiation.

Please explain how a accurate description of radiation's danger, affect and protection appeared in a story about a Alien visiting humans in a fiction book written by numerous authors, distorted by time and translation occurred.

1. He never said he was.

2. Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior. Gay couples are a defective direct conflict on the very core of evolution.

3. The government has no prevailing interest in regulating or preventing friendships.

Dear Smiley,

When Jesus took a couple three of his disciples and was transfigured before them, he and the other two that he was meeting shone with a dazzling light. The disciples were the witnesses.

No aliens. No radiation burns. No plutonium to singe their beards.

Just Light.

2.??? When you figure out what this means, could you let us know?
3. The citizens say that government does.

An alien turning his back or holding out his hand is an accurate description of radiation protection?

Wasn't the Father Alien, was it.

Don't want to admit it do you? Makes the event too real. Makes the Laws too relevant.
