Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 Full story: www.smh.com.au 27,196

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.

I think you are lying.
If not, address the fundamental context of Genesis 1 & 2. Show us your scholarly skill.

In context, what word was replaced by homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation?

So you agree that Genesis 1 & 2 set the God designed norm for marriage and sexual activity, right?

The word 'homosexual' appears in the New Testament, which had positively nothing to do with Hebrew.

Snicker. Snort.

<quoted text>Here is a good translation of Hebrew scriptures condemning 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.
More emphatic condemnations of course are repeated in the New Testament.
Perhaps this will help you understand how ridiculous the question you have plagiarized really is.
David. This is a very poor translation. Why should anyone believe a word you say?

Welcome back though. We missed your incredibly stupid posts.

It had nothing to do with Paul's letters which were written in Greek also. The word homosexual was invented around the turn of the 20th century David.

Wow, alternate universe gay Robert, you sure are obsessed with gay/fecal subjects, aren't you? Is that normal in your world? Over here, it's mostly just the guys who are trying to repress their homosexual desires that are so obsessed with that stuff.

Sorry honey, that's all He wrote in Genesis about creation. And there was absolutely no indication of any other design or intent.

Moveover, I agree, only an idiot would "make an all-encompassing declaration based on such a small sample."

However, I don't. I take the whole Bible as context. You however, want to take one word, segregated from the context and "make an all-encompassing declaration based on such a small sample." And to top it off, you bias your conclusion against the likely interpretation of that segregated word!

Your bias is showing...

Smirk.

The zealous homophobic argument:
- Homosexuality is condemned in the Bible. Therefore it is wrong to be gay. Therefore I am able to justify my hatred towards you.

Reasonable modern argument:
-The same part of the Bible that condemns homosexuality is the same part that condemns shrimp, pork, haircuts, shaving, wearing two different fabrics and planting two different seeds in the same field.
- Anyone who follows Leviticus to the letter in modern society would rightly be locked away in a mental institution
- Christianity is only one of many religions, and the Bible itself is open to many interpretations.
- The Christian Bible carries the overall view of not judging people and loving each other. Judgement should be saved for God etc.
- Homosexuality, Homosexual relationships, and Homosexual marriages have been widely recorded in history and predates Christianity by thousands of years.
- Not everyone shares the views portrayed by Christians, and many Christians do not have an issue with homosexuality. It is against your own religion and also that of western society to impose hateful views on others (imposing hateful views is similar to the Nazi party in the late 30s...)

Well, Genius, we are still waiting for you to say what word was replaced with homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why homosexual is a better translation. Make sure you answer in context, of course.

Genius, spelling "ad hominem" with your anti-homosexual slant is itself an ad hominem attack.

One word can't be that hard to find, you made the claim. prove it.

Also, you've conveniently neglected to mention the other historical finds that make some (which one you haven't shared) Bibles more accurate.

Still waiting, again and again.....

The bible does speak of men laying with men and women laying with women as an abomination in the eyes of god. The bible was strict about the fact that this was not god's natural order just the same as race mixing yet with each day that passes we learn to tolerate it and promote it which basically means we are tolerating evil which makes us wrong for doing so. Homosexuality is wrong and if you are a homo you can ask forgiveness and repent of your ways and god will forgive you or you can continue in your sinful ways of the flesh and parish forever!
Care to elaborate on the history and philosophical origin of natural law or is this just another condemnation from an asshat?

Honey, you clearly don't know sh/t about the Bible, let alone the laws and not to mention comparing anything to the Nazi's.

I assert you have posted someone else's thinking and are incapable of defending any single aspect of it.

Smile.
