nerdtchn...what on Earth possesses you to believe that Jews ~3400 years ago spoke and wrote in English modern English? Does it really make sense to you to think that they travelled thousands of miles and 34 centuries in time (how?) and chose to write their holiest text in that language rather than their own?

What the hell are you talking about? What's this rubbish you`re talking about Doctor Who jews writing the Torah?

The text you quote is not Leviticus 18:22. It is one of many inaccurate versions of it in English, creatively interpreted to make the statement people with power wanted it to make, millenia after it was written.

Transliterated to this alphabet, Leviticus 18:22 reads "V`et zachar lo tishkav mishk`vey eeshah toeyvah hee."

I have already given an accurate translation into English.

You can make anything up you like and label it "Leviticus 18:22".

Yeah, sure why not. They're just saying otherwise in the bible... it`s not like it matters you know.

Angilion: what the hell are you talking about? Leviticus 18:22 says "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; such a thing is an abomination."

I don't know about you, but this really doesn`t need any "creative interpretation" to say being gay is a sin for me.

Smiley-Guy...I think you should read the Christian bible a lot more, because your posts are wrong.

You say there are verses in which God talks about how being a homosexual is a sin.

That is not true. There are no such verses. Not a single one.

As an example, you cite an incorrect translation of a letter from Paul (note: Paul is not God), which doesn't say that being a homosexual is a sin anyway.

I would bet good money that you have never even heard the word `arsenokoitai` (transliterated Greek) or why it`s crucial in this context.

I suggest *you* read the Christian bible, because your ignorance of it is making a fool of you. The shellfish thing is covered by Leviticus 11:10-11 Not far from the main verse creatively interpreted against homosexuality (that`s 18:22).

Would you like to try again on the stoning and general killing thing?
