    Talk about garbage in, garbage out! Homosexuality is definitely listed as a sin, just read Romans chapter one.

    or are gays condemned regardless of what they do with their sexual orientation?

    Just wondering.
    Yes, they are condemned by God, and they should be condemned by man.

    Good luck for the outrage that is coming after you shortly. But I agree with you!
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    I don't worry about what a bunch of fools and perverts say at some website.

    Maybe the state of Texas should put a bounty on them, but that raises the question of what the bag limit would be.

    Try reading it in the original Greek

    Then I'm right. Like I said, the bible never says homosexuality is an abomination.
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
    "When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."

    Two words are used in the passage that you refer to as Leviticus 20:13 "ish" and "zachar". "If an ish (adult man) also lie with zachar (young male), as he lieth with an isha (adult woman). . . they shall surely be put to death"

    The best interpretation seems to indicate a condemnation of an adult male having sex with a male too young to be considered an adult. If the two males were both adults the word "ish" would have been a more appropriate choice than "zachar"
