    Gay Bible 'arms' worshippers against Christian haters

    Queen James Bible has been edited to make homophobic interpretations 'impossible'

    "Eight verses from six books, including Genesis and Leviticus, have been 'reinterpreted' by the authors who claim homosexuality wasn't mentioned until the 1946 Revised Standard Version."

    metta8, man, you always find the best s**t. icon_smile.gif

    Okay, I was a deacon at a MCC for years, I've studied the Bible extensively as preparation for seminary (which I finally decided not to do), so I've looked at the whole "What does the Bible really say about homosexuality" question six ways from Sunday (if you'll pardon the expression).

    I am gay and I am a Christian and in my humble opinion, it's time to stop haggling with the haters over those eight effin' Bible verses. People who would use the Bible as a weapon are highly unlikely to let things like facts deter them; believe me, I know this from experience.

    I have read the Bible - yes, all of it, more than once. And no matter how you reinterpret, re-think and pirouette around them, there are sentences in the Bible that clearly prohibit same-gender sex (between men, of course, because when the Bible was written, women were chattel, to be owned and/or coveted like a house or a donkey). So if you actually believe the Bible is the "Word of God" (and please don't get me started on that notion), then you better stop sucking cock and fucking ass and start keeping some serious Kosher, for starters.

    The Bible is a book, my brothers. A very old book. Use what is useful and helpful to you in your little life, and fucking ignore what isn't. I'm begging you.

    I honestly don't see the point in trying to change "what has always been" the case just so that minorities can "feel" at ease. If they can change the Bible the way they "wish" to interpretate it then why not change the Quran whilst they are at it? This is just encouraging anti-LGBT attitudes and giving power to the already haters towards LGBT people. Let's learn to be tolerated and encourage understanding instead of demolishing years of activism for nothing!
