    actually the bible was inspired by God and written by men that were inspired by God to write down those things that he said.
    It had nothing to do with prejudices or anything else. the Israelites were called by God to be different race of people with different ethical values and system compared to their
    hedonistic neighbors. For most of their existance Israel was a migrating people in which homosexuality would have put even more stress on their population than
    what already existed.

    I go by the overall message of God and Jesus: peace, love, forgiveness, and treating your fellow man as you would yourself.

    Do you believe God created the Earth in 6 days?
    Yep and there is also the admonition of sin and other things that were are to bring toward people.
    You either believe what the bible says about marriage or you don't. if you don't then that is on you not me.

    With God all things are possible and nothing is impossible.

    I feel it's worth pointing out that the time differential was more than a day. Or a few days.

Others who have different views have many others to choose from.

    And that's the problem with religion. You pick what you WANT to believe.
    Silly superstitions.

    Hence my example. They used the Bible to justify their murder for the sake of forcing their religion on others. They interpreted the Bible to justify that. When God gave us free will and clearly told us that we could choose to follow Him or not.
