YES!
What ancient Hebrew word is there for homosexual?
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.....
Rabbi Steinberg-Caudill believes that the Hebrew word that orginally conveyed the concept of what we today refer to as "homosexual" is the word &#1505;&#1512;&#14 97;&#1505; (saris), commonly translated "eunuch".

Simply put, homosexuality is defined as a man desiring another man for his sexual partner. In ancient times, a eunuch was chosen to guard the king's harem. The eunuch could be trusted to guard a king's harem, often because he had been castrated and could not produce offspring.

Yeah, Genius. Exactly where does it say that woman is created in the image of god? I can see where it says twice that man is created in the image of god, but your quote only says that woman was created.
Please, feel free to add anything you want to the bible.
And what word was replaced with homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation?

Genesis 1:27-28 (NASB)
27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them...
Here are some clear conclusions we find in these first two chapters of the Bible.
1. God created man and woman as a reflection of Him....
Am I missing anything here yet?
Smile.
Genius, where in the bible does it say that "God created woman in his image"? Your post only says "male and female he created them", which leaves woman on the same footing as all the other animals.

You haven't made any assertation.

You've simply used rude language in order to diminish my argument.

And I haven't ducked away from defending my argument because all of your replies have failed to acknowledge my argument, you simply insult me by attempting to provoke a rude response to your rather rude posts.

My argument is that the Bible is open to interpretation, you should respect the views of others, it is against christian religion to persecute the "meek" and judge each other ("judge not lest ye yourself be judged"), and there are certain sects of christianity which support homosexuality.

I also put forward the argument that since homosexuality and homosexual relationships and marriage actually predate Christianity this argument is pretty much irrelevant.

What exactly IS your argument? Because as of yet you have failed to put forward a reply containing any intellectual substance.

Here's what you wrote,Genius:
"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."
Prove your assertion that she read it some where else.

HOMOSEXUALITY & THE HEBREW BIBLE
"As a result of this serious research, Rabbi Steinberg-Caudill is completely convinced that THE ORIGINAL HEBREW TEXTS OF THE TORAH (the Hebrew Chumash - the Five Books of Moses) HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SAY CONCERNING HOMOSEXUALITY AS WE UNDERSTAND THE TERM "HOMOSEXUALITY" TO MEAN IN TODAYS WORLD!
Sadly, the reality of our human history is that the texts of Leviticus (and Deuteronomy) which were utilized by the teachers and rabbis of the Jewish tradition to condemn homosexuality, were so employed under a direct and constant danger and THREAT from the dominant and controlling Christian governmental and ecclesiastical authorities who needed to have the "perceived" Jewish interpretation of the texts, as taught by the Jewish rabbinical authorities, to be in accordance with their own Christian commentaries and teachings on homosexuality and what they believed (falsely) to be sexual perversion. Thus, they kept a close watch on what the Jewish rabbis wrote about subjects sensitive to Church dogma.
This period of the condemnation of homosexuals, coincides with similar condemnation edicts against witches, healers, and heretics which began mostly in the 4th to 6th centuries of the common era (CE), which was at least 1500 years after the original texts of Leviticus and Deuteronomy was codified into the Hebrew Torah. This condemnation was largely misplaced and did not represent the actual views of the writers and compilers of either Leviticus or Deuteronomy."

Nice try.

No culture has accepted homosexuality from start to finish. This precedes the Judeo/Christian faiths. Moreover, citing an unknown Rabbi hardly makes a case. Especially when an overt reading of the instruction and examples of homosexuality in the Old and New Testaments clearly contradict the claim.

Smile.
