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.

The bottom line is this; Historic Jewish and Christian understanding is consistent and identical. Homosexual sex is immoral. Common sense has told cultures and religions throughout human history the same thing.
Only a person in extreme denial would argue against history, all cultures, all religions, physical design, science and medical advice that anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.
Unbelievably idiotic.

You prove my last sentence.
Your words, "For something to be immoral it needs to affect someone's life in a negative way", then you immediately excuse an abuser and the abused.
Next you pick a moment in time to lock in a Nazi act, ignoring the abhorrence of the rest of the world at the time and the historical judgment that followed. By your logic, the extremely brief and rare periods of gay acceptance in a culture overrule the vast overall rejection by every culture.
Then you make the idiotic assertion that God, of all beings, put a g-spot next to an anus, ignoring the vicinity of the penis and denying the harmful violation of anal design. In other words, if the anus were designed for intercourse, it would be a vagina. You top it off by confusing risk with inherent harm. All behavior has some degree of risk, not all behavior is harmful.
You typify gay twirl. It boggles this half senile old man's mind to hear such stupidity!
Smile.
Hebrew word for homosexual, please oh enlightened one, we're all waiting.

And those other ancient writing like the Dead Sea Scrolls that are changing the Bible, could you give us a couple of the names of those versions?

Help us all with your amazing insight or admit you are wrong.

LOL!

So you've got nothing but your opinion.

Kimare also claimed that there were previous cultures that recognized same sex marriage but in every case those attempts at same sex marriage failed. I'm still waiting for him to tell us exactly which cultures those were.

Lots of 'claims' and no proof.

Yeah, that's the teacher I'd want.

We're ALL waiting for the liar to be revealed, again.....

First you get schooled about ad homoan attacks and gay twirl, now you defend by exercising Godwin's Law.

The evidence of ignorance is clear.

I'm still waiting to get schooled on what word was replaced by homosexual in 1946, and why homosexual is a more accurate translation.

Man you are stupid.

The fundamental point is people deserve to be treated equally, whether black homosexual bisexual disabled etc Being religious is a personal choice and homosexuality does not need the opposition of religion. I mean, do you see homosexuals saying its disgusting to be religious, no they oppose a single belief within religion, not the person, unlike those of religion. It upsets me that people can remain so ignorant, and conform to the endless flow of ignorance through many generations, the flow needs to be stopped as soon as possible.

I going to go sit on the pot and try to push out a big ol' 16 inch Smelly Robsan5, named after Robsan5. Then I will stand up and say, "nice to finally meet you. Now I'm going to piss all over you, Smelly Robsan5." And with that, I will hose that stinky punk down, and then flush that punk out of life for good.

You've got something up your ass that's 16 inches long?!?
I don't think you're complaining, I think you're bragging.

Original design.

Genesis 1:26-28 (NASB)
26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
28 God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

Seems to me male and female equals the image of God. Only got half the equation with gay couples...

Smile.

Nice copy and paste. If god gave you a penis and a vagina, what do you think he was trying to tell you?

Here's a hint, it's the same thing I'd tell you, which for most people would be physically impossible.

And yet, no dick for this vagina yet.

It is clear you all need to be schooled for far more than just a word. Be patient and pay attention.

Are you confused about anything in this passage?

This is too deep for you. I have to have at least some brains to work with. You don't even work! Besides, girls are supposed to be quiet and listen.

Yeah, I can't see where you explained what word was replaced by the word homosexual in 1946, and why homosexual is a more accurate translation.

This is the concept of 'context'. We understand what someone is saying by comprehending the context they are using words, not just the words alone.

Now, in a sincere effort to understand this passage, what do you notice?

Smile.
