Leviticus Doesn't Actually Prohibit Homosexuality

Leviticus 20:13 (King James Version)

"if a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

,What is sexual intercourse>

Easy....

When a man and woman engage in sexual intercourse the man inserts his erect penis into the woman's vagina. Now let me ask you this, What is the keyword here? Is the keyword INSERTS, or are the keywords PENIS & VAGINA. i would say the latter for they are sex organs wheras insertion is just a byproduct of procreation.

In short, Leviticus 20;13 is not a blanket condemnation of male homosexual behavior, but rather a prohibition against engaging in ONE specific (disgusting and pointless) act.

This book has as much impact on my life as Twilight.

Elf boy,

We've heard it all.

I've heard twenty different interpretations in our favor of this.

I don't care. The bible's shit.

But even if it weren't, you haven't found anything new. Everyone's heard all this before.

Look Deeper

forget about the bible for a moment, the key point i was making is that
there is absolutely no good reason to use the anus as a stand in for the vagina

hehehe...

I would totally disagree with you there.

I think there is a very good reason.

Which is?

Easy...

Because men have an anus and only women have vaginas. So, without a vagina, the anus is an obvious stand in for penetration.

You realize I'm not relating any of this to the text of the Bible... ;-)

why do men need to stick their dick in something to prove they are a man?

Hmm...

I think the larger issue is why you're debating this at 12:25 a.m. on a Friday night in NYC.

Go out and try and insert something... despite it not being the keyword in your Da Vinci Code dismantling of the Word of God.

penetration

isnt sex. the anus isn't a sex organ. Men don't have vagina's, but they do have penises, which by the way are more useful than you seem to think.believe me :)

i got a CAPTCHA....

booo.....

Err...

Penetration is sex, it just isn't necessarily procreation. Ask Bill Clinton.

you know the saying " i don't shit where i eat"?

well, i don't fuck where i shit

jeff's picture

Oh...

So this is just an elaborate way to say you won't have anal sex but if you wanted to, the Bible says it's OK?! Got it.

Well, you'd have to be pretty well hung to fuck where you shit, no? Although it would explain why you were home on a Friday night.

I just think its odd that gay men have a tendency to be fixated on penetrating something, when gay women generally have no interest n being penetrated( yea of course, theres fingering, but that isn't sex. at the most its foreplay)
