    Its messed up but I will go into depth to explain it if you care to hear.
    I already knew the translation was wrong. But what else was translated wrong?

    reading the Bible cover to cover is daunting enough but that only scratches the surface.

    Lack of concern for the homosexuals who wish to be held in high esteem and their demand for all the benefits given 'traditional' married couples is not necessarily indicative of religious fundamentalism.

    I'm still trying to figure out what the gay agenda is...

    People keep mentioning it but I've never seen it, my gay friend in college had a similar agenda to me, get through school, pave a way to a better and brighter future for ourselves, and have a little fun and sometimes a lot of beer while doing it


    My Church hasn't been 'caving' but the Catholic Church in the US is much more liberal then in the rest of the world, I've been to certain churches where the homily has been more political has spoken against the Churches stances on issues involving allowing women priests and homosexuality. The Church as a whole will never give the okay for gay marriage at least not in the foreseeable future so if that's what you mean by the 'gay agenda' then I would vote against any possibility of her caving on that issue.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    I only know a few of the scriptures that people use to say homosexuality is wrong because my ex sent me a bunch of pages about them. Which in respect to her conversation I read. But I they all say the same thing. Homosexuality is wrong IN THE TIME PERIOD AND WHERE THEY WERE but not that God was against it.

    It wasn't that it was translated incorrectly but incomplete.

    The Bible is very specific about sexual morality. It is addressed only to men because women were property in the old testament. It says, don't have sex with family members, in laws, step children, and numerous other forms of heterosexual sex. It had to be specific because it can't ban heterosexuality although the evangelical movement in the 19th century did forbid sex of all types. They just decided to change that. Anyway back to leviticus.

    In the older text it says that it is abominable to have sex with a catamite, which is a beardless man, in the Jewish culture it was forbidden to shave your beard, so this was a boy, male child. It also referred to thus person you are forbidden to sleep with as a slave, sex slave, prostitute. Its all the same in Hebrew culture.

    Now upon translating to modern English about two hundred or so years ago the translators just said homosexuality because it was extremely taboo at the time so no need to be specific.

    I read Leviticus. The message is loud and clear. I don't need to know anything else about monotheism in any form..................................

    The "gay agenda" is the proverbial boogie man in our age that silk bring yet another false apocalypse.

    God forbid this information arose for everyone to see. I mean, if it did they would discard it as a lie.
