Is This Jesus's Opinion On Gay Marriage?

Well, I was just thumbing through (or scrolling through, since it's on my Computer) the King James Version of the Bible. I made a pact with myself to actually read this FAT book before the end of the year. ANYWAYS...I came across these verses in Mattew, starting at chapter 19, verse 9.

And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Mt 19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.

Mt 19:11 But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.

Mt 19:12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Now, I'm not thinking all eunuchs are gay, but gays certainly seem to fall into the realm of eunuchs, if they're incapable of having an intimate (sexual) gratifying relationship with a member of the opposite sex.

That being the case, they are actually excused from marriage. Remember, in Judaism your're practically required to marry and make tons of babies.

I also found plenty of other references to eunuchs in the Bible:

2ki 9:32 And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three EUNUCHS.

2ki 20:18 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be EUNUCHS in the palace of the king of Babylon.

Isa 39:7 And of thy sons that shall issue from thee, which thou shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be EUNUCHS in the palace of the king of Babylon.

Isa 56:4 For thus saith the LORD unto the EUNUCHS that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;

Jer 29:2 (After that Jeconiah the king, and the queen, and the EUNUCHS, the princes of Judah and Jerusalem, and the carpenters, and the smiths, were departed from Jerusalem

Jer 34:19 The princes of Judah, and the princes of Jerusalem, the EUNUCHS, and the priests, and all the people of the land, which passed between the parts of the calf;

Jer 38:7 Now when Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, one of the EUNUCHS which was in the king's house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon; the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin;

Jer 41:16 Then took Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces that were with him, all the remnant of the people whom he had recovered from Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, from Mizpah, after that he had slain Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, even mighty men of war, and the women, and the children, and the EUNUCHS, whom he had brought again from Gibeon:

Da 1:3 And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his EUNUCHS, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king's seed, and of the princes;

Da 1:7 Unto whom the prince of the EUNUCHS gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.

Da 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the EUNUCHS that he might not defile himself.

Da 1:9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the EUNUCHS.

Da 1:10 And the prince of the EUNUCHS said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.

Da 1:11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the EUNUCHS had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

Da 1:18 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the EUNUCHS brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.

Well, what do you think?

Off topic....but, weren't some of those quotes the reason why the cult that killed themselves when the Hailbop comet was here castrated themselves? Just curious.

*sheesh* I have no idea! I though maybe it was because they listened to Art Bell too much!!
