Here some more.<quoted text>And for back up you turn to a Bible verse which has been deliberately mistranslated for an American audience with the very clear intent to make God into a homophobe. Sorry, but the closest known to the original copy of Paul's epistle simply does not support such a tortured "translation" into American English and neither does the tradition of Christian teaching of the meaning of what are supposed to be Paul's original words. What King James translated into "nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind," had always been taught as warnings against having soft morals (the Greek word used by Paul doesn't mean effeminate, it means being soft or pliable, like fabric) and masturbation (the Greek word used by Paul is a combination of the words for man and bed and not a term that his readers would have used to describe same sex acts or those who engaged in them). If you still want to believe that God doesn't like gay, you go right ahead, just don't be quite so sure that the Bible really backs you up on that.
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.
