~~~From what I have studied, many of the ancient religions vilified male homosexuality, and were not concerned so much with lesbians.
Women had no way of supporting their selves back then, so they married and bore many children for the theologians who needed babies to grow into soldiers and baby-producing machines to support their causes.
Homosexual men were drawn to other men and did not want to have sex with women, and THAT was not what the theologians wanted in their domains.
So, male homosexuals were often put to death as a statement to other males that they had better pretend to be heterosexual, marry and have children, or be prepared to die violent deaths.
After all ... war to the theologians, was the best reason of all to have the population keep producing babies.
Religion never was about serving the gods. It was about serving the wills of the theological fortune-tellers ... and if homosexuals were of no use to them, they would label them as evil, and their own human vile wills would be done.
Horrible beasts of prey.
As the word says absolutely Reprobate .... Sold unto sin quoting reprobate resources.
