  •  So the new testament doesn't apply to gentiles? (0+ / 0-)

    You do realize there are anti-gay passages in the bible... right?

    See:
    Timothy 1:9-10:
    Romans 1:24-27
    Corinthians 6:9
    1 Timothy 1:10

    And it is interesting that God treats humans differently.  So if I got you straight.  Jews are not allowed to be gay, but Christians can.  LOL!

    •  You said "abomination" (0+ / 0-)

      So that would be the old Testament.

      [1] Timothy 1:9-10 ...does not mention homosexuality.

      Romans 1:24-27 ...is about sexuality without spirituality (love) and if you read it in Greek (you know Greek, right Mr. Know It All?) it clearly refers to men who avail themselves of (male) child prostitutes.

      [1] Corinthians 6:9 ...I need to research

      1 Timothy 1:10 ...you already listed, which pretty much demonstrates the degree of effort you put into this; my responses are probably a huge waste of my time.

      Now, let me also point out that all of these passages were written by a person (probably people) who never met Jesus, and hence, none of this is stuff that Jesus said.  They are the opinions of Paul and should be taken as such.

      So if I got you straight.
      (no pun intended)
      Jews are not allowed to be gay, but Christians can.  LOL!
      Christians can also eat shrimp.

      Whether or not Jews can be gay is outside my area of expertise.

      Harboring resentment is like drinking poison and expecting someone else to die.

        That is a euphemism for, "I need to search the internet to find convoluted desperate explanations to delude myself into thinking the bible is not bigoted [which it is]."

        Whether or not Jews can be gay is outside my area of expertise.

        I really hope you are not for real dude, otherwise you have some major issues.

        •  I hope you are not for real. (0+ / 0-)

          You're kind of stupid.

          Research means research.  I have to go to the Greek and read it in Greek (something I doubt you have the mental capacity to do) and I don't have time to do that right now.

          How does admitting that I don't have the authority or understanding to tell Jews how to practice their religion indicative of "major issues."

          Are you allowed out in public without an escort?

          •  Seems like you are really reaching (0+ / 0-)

            Its in black and white.

            And for someone who thinks that the bible could possibly outlaw homosexuality for Jews but not for Christians, to call someone else stupid is like the pot calling the kettle black.

            •  Dude (0+ / 0-)

              You don't know anything about the Bible.

              You couldn't even cut'n'paste a list of verse references successfully.

              If you think that trying to debate someone on the contents of a book you haven't read makes you look anything but fucking stupid, then you are a sad, sad dude.

              •  I have read it (0+ / 0-)

                I have also read the Koran, and I have read the Torah (old testament).

                I love how you treat the bible as this extremely complex text.

                The bible is actually pretty simplistic, and you can't flip through 10 pages without it contradicting itself.  A child can read and understand it, and in fact they do every day.  We aren't talking about Principia or anything.  The bible was made for shit brains like Palin, Bush, and Bachman.

                •  Appropriate quote (0+ / 0-)
                  Otto: Apes don't read philosophy!

                  Wanda: Yes they do, Otto, they just don't understand it.

                  The Bible is culture and wisdom collected over 1500 years, written in languages you can't read by people you know nothing about.

                  Only an idiot would consider it a simple document.  Palin, Bush and Bachman have read the Bible and don't understand it either.

                  You're anti-intellectualism is really appalling.
