    Yes I can, because not only can I say it isn't there, but I can say that there is no possible way it could be there. Corinthians is one book in the English translation has the word homosexual in it, this is flawed for so many reasons I can't count.

    Corinth is a city in Greece, so the original text is written in Greek, homosexual is a term invented by alternating Latin which was only coined about a century ago. The rich text is the word arsenokoitai in conjunction with malakos and catamites, arsenokoitai is the combination of Arseno which means male and koitai which means bed. We know it was a greco tradition for predominate males to take boy sex slaves, so arsenokoitai is a man who takes a man to bed. This would apply to modern homosexuality but if it weren't for the context in which the word is used. Malakos means soft, catamite means boy prostitute.

    The original text as my very basic understanding of Greek, is referring to the wealthy users of mankind, particularly men with young boy concubines.

    Just like the word kill in reference to the ten commandments is understood to mean murder. The many times different hands have translated the Bible into many different languages it loses its meaning. Like the game of telephone but over four millennia and across hundreds of cultures.

    I would love to learn more biblical Greek just to see what truly was written.

    I don't see how it's sad. If you're a Catholic, you follow the rules of the Catholic Church, or else you don't get to participate in all activities and benefits via non-compliance.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It isn't sad, because it isn't true.

    Obviously we have some Gays in my church...My church has about a thousand members so if you go by stats then 1% are gay....Like I said before they are welcomed with open arms but they cannot sin just like straights can't

    Catholics don't worship popes, so the popes teachings aren't really of much value.

    Further more the world has grown since you were in catholic school, as did the church. There are gay affirming Catholic churches, what you believe is irrelevant.

    You don't care if they openly announce their heterosexuality. It's the homosexuality you care if they announce.

    Yup, my church follows biblical scripture, if yours doesn't, I guess it isn't Christian.
