  •  Well, if you read the whole argument (0+ / 0-)

    above all this, everything depends on whose translation you agree with. This perfectly illustrates one of the basic problems with giving these texts the kind of consideration they continue to get despite them not being worthy of that attention.  No one can say what they really meant because of translations issues and the fact that most of them did not survive being edited over the years.  No one is looking at actual original texts.

    The problem we have now is that you can argue until you are blue in the face about the meaning of these texts, but it only matters how people NOW are interpreting them.  And a good portion of Christians interpret them to mean that homosexuality is an offense to god and that we should pass laws reflecting that interpretation.  

    This is why I fervently hope that the bible, both old and new testaments will be relegated to the mythology shelves where they belong, and that mankind can finally move beyond them.
