Some of these can be considered ambiguous.
All of those can be considered ambiguous if you look at the language and context they were written in and not modern English interpretations of them.
The new testament ones are particularly ambiguous because the modern interpretations all rely on very dubious translations or just making stuff up. No joke - two of the three main ones (Corinthians, Timothy) rely on translating a word with no known meaning as "homosexual". They're the "clearest" anti-homosexual passages in the NT and they`re just plain made up. You`ll usually find "effeminate" in Corinthians too - that wasn`t in the original either. The third one (Romans) relies on a very dubious interpretation of [quote]para physin[/quote] and a complete removal of all context.
It`s all very ambiguous, especially since (as you point out) the most important source of Christian belief does not condemn homosexuality.

What a dummy. "put em in a fence and they will all die out" He obivously does not know where homo's come from. Not from other homo`s. This guy is an example of why ignorance is not always bliss.
