<quoted text>You truly need to get help for your OCD. You don't seem to have a clue how pathetic you make yourself and your horrible hate based radical homosexual cause look.
You are posting on a thread about the Bible's many irrefutable condemnations of your homosexual lifestyle choice. If you really thought God's Commands against your lifestyle choice were 'drivel' you wouldn't be here 24/7 posting such hate and nonsense. Obviously you are very disturbed about your lifestyle based on perversion and rebellion against God.
You've already FAILED your OCD 'test.' I gave you rational tools to get your own proof and you failed to follow up.
You also failed to provide any evidence or logic to support your ridiculous OCD lie about my identity.
As for 'interpretation,' you have failed to provide even one Bible translation, ancient Bible text, or Judeo-Christian tradition that places in question the Bible's many explicit commands against all homosexual behavior:
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 blood guiltiness 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."
These commands are supported by constant discoveries of ancient Bible texts and also by other early Christian writings such as The Didache. Any claims to the contrary are based on pure fiction.]
The main reason you have flunked your own test: "The Spirit of God will not dwell in an unclean tabernacle." Since you've never read the Bible, perhaps you need to know that the 'tabernacle' is figuratively the body that you destroy with your perversion.
Endless repetition. If you don't like gay people get lost! it's that simple.

<quoted text>You are indeed a tedious troll as advertised and very sick to boot.
Why do you troll Bible threads? You know that you can never change the fact that the Bible forever condemns your homosexual perversion in the plainest of terms, in both Testaments, and forever will.
You do realize that this is cross-posted on the Gay/Lesbian Forum, right? This is not a "Bible thread".

I'm fully aware of what you THINK the Bible says about homosexuality. It's the same thing a local fundamentalist pastor used to preach every Sunday. The same pastor used to cruise the forest preserve to get oral sex from other men. He claimed that he didn't believe the Bible actually said anything at all about homosexuality, but his congregation expected him to condemn it, so he did.

According to all Biblical accounts, Eve was a clone of Adam and therefore had identical DNA.

Are you trying to be stupid?

We're still waiting for you to explain how Adam and Eve aren't related, David.

Paul said all scripture is inspired by God. Did he really include his letters as being part of Scripture? What about all the scripture which is not in the Bible?

Jesus discounted most of the Law of Moses as Laws of man written to burden them. It is clear that Jesus only preached on the Ten Commandments. There are no 'commands' against homosexuality. Anyone who makes such claims hates the Lord.
