I just realized something. Not only are religious zealots hypocritical in their interpreations of the Bible, but they quote both the Old and New
Which is it guys?
If we refer to Leviticus 18:22 where it states
"Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination."
Than we must also allow the passages in the same Jewish Holiness Code that
prohibits sexual intercourse when a woman has her period,
prohibits eating rare meat
bans wearing clothes that are made from a blend of textiles
prohibits cross-breeding livestock
bans sowing a field with mixed seed
prohibits eating pigs, rabbits, or some forms of seafood
requires Saturday to be reserved as the Sabbath
If we go to the New Testament...well, there are really no mentions of homosexuality in the New Testament. The commonly referred to passage is a
mistranslation of a word that more than likely meant "male prostitute." It is now believed these male prostitutes serviced women, not men.
So, which shall it be?
