Agreed.
The bible has done huge damage to humanity and, even in the 21st century, warps the thinking of people who should know better.

Re - the Jewish culture is an expression of that suppression?
The Jewish account of their seizure and ethnic cleansing of the so-called promised land is extremely graphic and matches their ethnic cleansing of Palestine from 1946 onwards.

Nobody goes to heaven,we must choose between everlasting life on earth or death. John 3:13 Moreover ,no man has ascended into heaven but he that descended from heaven, the son of man,(Jesus)is the son of man, as you can see in many parts of the scriptures.

With the very first chapter of the Bible establishing the first couple (heterosexual), and no homosexual relationship in the original design, let's look at the very next chapter.
What do you see here?
Genesis 2:18-25 (NASB)
18 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."
19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
21 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man."
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
Smile.
<quoted text>
The question is centered on what the Bible says, not your opinion of if the Bible is right or wrong.
However, based on just design, every aspect of gender distinction balances the blend of both.
On just the level of sexuality, at the least, homosexuality is a wasted duplication, and in many cases, a violent violation of design.
Moreover, evolution condemns homosexuality as a defective dead end with scientists quickly confirming that it is a epi-marker mistake.
The bottom line is this; Your narrow solution, based solely on orientation misses the vast expression of blended genders. The Bible says something was missing. God didn't duplicate anything to fix it, He complimented and completed it with something distinct.
Smile.
These are not your personal opinions?

Folks we have here the amazing three nipple vagina man acting as the ultimate Bible authority.

Sorry, I'm not buying it.

Hardly Islamic theology.
Those quotes came directly from Genesis 2 (NASB which is the source of the stuff that you quote)
The Muslims can be blamed for a lot of things but not Genesis 2
This equates a woman with animals?

Genesis 2:18 (NASB)
18 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."

Or this?

Genesis 2:22-25 (NASB)
22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man."
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

This what happens when a dick thinks.

Re - even in the 21st century, warps the thinking of people who should know better.
That is one of the bad things which takes away a Christian's ability to look critically at his holy book and discard that which is absurd, or no longer relevant.
Other bad sides of Christianity include the early crusades, Inquisition, witch persecution, stifling of science and ideas contrary to the teaching of Rome.
On the good side?
Within Christianity were (and still are) many good and decent individuals and the fact that they were able to survive in the toxic atmosphere of the Church is a tribute to the strength of their characters.
The great building programmes of the medieval age were a product of Christianity but one has to wonder about their value in comparison to the changes that might have been made to the wretched lives of the serfs.
Re - curious to see the morality and intelligence of a dick
I think it was Cicero who commented about abusing the plaintiff when one has no basis for an argument and I have noticed that most Christians resort to abuse, rather than discussion, when faced with a difficult question.
As regards my morality, I live my life by one single rule - I DON'T DO UNTO OTHERS ANYTHING THAT I DON'T WANT DONE TO ME. When it comes to women, I admit to always being horny but the simple word NO is the ultimate turn-off.
As regards your Snicker, you can shove that where the sun don't shine.
That's your basis?

Please, after you learn the reason for the Crusades, add up all the deaths you reached far back into history for. Then lets do some comparisons...

As to your other 'balances', they only further expose your morality. You are a bigot full of hate. It has made you stupid.

Here is one of many things you ignored;

Every day, in every community across America, numerous Churches are on the front lines assisting the poor and needy. They are carrying the weight of broken families, abandoned children, drug abuse and domestic violence.

Where are you dick?

The biblical account says nothing about "glowing". Much less 'blue glow'.
"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."

You assume there are other types of "glowing" radiation. That doesn't make it true.

Neutrinos pass through the earth without slowing down, so hiding in a rock will offer no protection at all.

I'm a redeemed cynic who remains barbarian.

I sink the knife of reality into the belly of denial and twist it with a smirk.

If life is the sum of this world, then certainly justice is a dream. On the other hand, if this life is simply a point in eternity, you have seriously misjudged your Maker.

Are you a betting man?

You might want to look at the historical record of the Canaanites...

As the leader of Israel just said, "If you take all the weapons from the Israelites, Israel will cease to exist. If you take all the weapons from the Palestinians, war will cease to exist." This ignores the fact that the world restored Israel to it's homeland in 1946.

You also ignore this;
