    Get a modern translation:
    sodomites are citizens of Sodom.

    The modern translation isn't accurate.

    noun

    a. (in many languages) a set of classes that together include all nouns, membership in a particular class being shown by the form of the noun itself or by the form or choice of words that modify, replace, or otherwise refer to the noun, as, in English, the choice of he to replace the man, of she to replace the woman, of it to replace the table, of it or she to replace the ship. The number of genders in different languages varies from 2 to more than 20; often the classification correlates in part with sex or animateness. The most familiar sets of genders are of three classes (as masculine, feminine, and neuter in Latin and German) or of two (as common and neuter in Dutch, or masculine and feminine in French and Spanish).
    b. one class of such a set.
    c. such classes or sets collectively or in general.
    d. membership of a word or grammatical form, or an inflectional form showing membership, in such a class.
    2. sex: the feminine gender.
    3. Archaic. kind, sort, or class.

    Gender had nothing to do with lifestyle.

    No that is not correct. Sodomite does not stand for citizens of sodom. Why would they mean that when Sodom no longer existed.....
    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.

    If you don't want to try to support your homophobic statement with some reliable proof, that's fine with me.

    Some drugs like alcohol are legal. And I certainly think they should be decriminalized.

    You would have to say yes with the logic you just posted.
    No I would not because I do not live in a lack and white world.

    Still nothing though you insist.
    Wait wait wait, WOMEN can't get into heaven either? And people think that this scripture is somehow worth taking as meaningful lessons?

    Actually, we're not. The thread isn't about that. But you always seem to need to start tossing out bible passages and proclaiming that other people aren't real Christians and that the bible says that god doesn't want people to be gay. That's not the topic of this thread. The topic of the thread is various religious groups either changing their ways to conform with modern social movements, or not. Why don't you stay on topic?

    No you don't. You make up context all the time. I've seen you claim that Isiah 7:14 is a prophecy about the messiah, a claim that requires ignoring the entire rest of the chapter.

    See, now you've got me on your wacky tangent. What the bible does or does not say is not the topic of this thread.

    Where do you get that from?

    Let's move back to the topic then.

    Do you think any church will hold out?

    The only one I think that will is the Catholic church.

    I think that any religious organization that stands too hard against social change will find itself severely lacking in membership. The Mormons realized this and did away with their overt polygamy and racism. Judaism (the majority of American Jews are reform) is shedding its biblically derived bigotry. I think the real lesson is "stand in the way of progress at your own risk".
