I will leave you with this summation of my view.<quoted text>
Frijoles---I answered the question
HughBe--- surely you answered the question but NOT the questions that I have asked. Answer them YES or NO, please sweetie.
HughBe--- Are you saying that Boteach speaks for ALL of Judaism?
Are you saying that the Tanach is WRONG?
Are you really saying that Moses was wrong and that your rabbis are RIGHT?
Was Moses inspired in writing the account or was it dictated to by your rabbis?
1. Do your rabbis support homosexuality?
2. Do your rabbis think that homosexuality is wrong?
3. Do your rabbis teach that Lesbian sex is not condemned in scriptures?
There are clearly prohibitions against homosexual behavior in the bible, however they derive from passages other than the narative of Sodom.
All I was doing was calling attention to the fact that latter interpretations, predominately Christian, tried to associate the Sin of Sodom with the other listed prohibitions from other chapters regarding homosexual behavior. It is clear that homosexuality is touched upon in the Sodom narrative, but the actual prohibition is not stated there.
Juding from the fiery responses by Sambee, yourself, and somewhat by Uhuh, it is also clear that your homophobic biases color your interpreations.
I never said that homosexuality wasnt prohibited, I just said it wasnt in that narrative. You dudes continue to read more into my posts than I say - despite MULTIPLE reposts by myself.
That says more about your BIASES (homophobia) than my interpretations.
This shall be the end of this topic for now from me.
