Of course .. Jesus was (from all evidence), a clean-minded , healthy man .. He stood up for eunuchs, whores who enjoyed their profession and even condemmed thieves .. He wasn't a bit scared by "differences" and he was no mealy-mouthed hypocrite . Let's celebrate his legend and stop behaving like weak sisters who get red in the face at the mere word SEX .. he most certainly wouldn't have approved of that ..

Genesis 2:18, 21-24

The Lord God said,'It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him'...and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh.

Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said,'This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man.' For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.(NIV)

Notice how the rib was not to make two men or two women but a man and a woman who would then marry and have children and not sex for personal enjoyment.

Actually, ribs were made to be barbecued for the enjoyment of many, as anyone in Kansas City can tell you.

"He then proceeded to populate earth by allowing Eve to copulate with her own sons .." .. making the rest of us descendants of incestous behavior ..(Biblical authors forgot to add this small but libido-teasing detail ).. VERY naughty of them to skirt the issue .. but apparently they weren't as squeamish as present day ( so-called ) Christians .

Notice how evilgelicals don't similarly obsess about adulterous heterosexuals or heterosexuals who engage in non procreative sex...even by the insane tenets of their own mistranslated, internally contradictory scripture.

The evilgelicals merely have massive homosexual fixations.

I didn't know there were Baptists in Minnesota. Apparently, the fear that someone somewhere is enjoying themselves has spread more widely than anyone would have guessed.

Jesus stated marriage is for a man and a woman-mark chapter 10.

Jesus never said that homosexuals can't get it on. Jesus loves EVERYONE.
