Does God really hate homosexuality, or was it just a cultural rule?
The hidden truth about what the Bible REALLY says about GAYS.
I'm not the only person to have realized that many Old Testament prohibitions were really prophylactic and also intended to increase the reproduction rate. For example:
circumcision: a healthy decision for a nomadic desert people, that most Semites besides the Hebrews practiced, as well as ancient Egyptians, all living in sandy arid desert or near-desert conditions.
dietary laws: many of the prohibited foods, like pork, produce illness if not carefully prepared, as they might often not be in simple societies.
homosexuality: gays don't produce children, which was a first priority for Hebrews in a harsh environment with a high infant mortality rate. Not producing children was a dereliction of your duty to the community.
men who had lost their penis or testicles could not be Hebrews: same child-producing reason as above.
And so the list goes. It's as if God (or whoever was the real author of these texts), was using religion to urge a non-scientific, low-technology people to make smart, easy to understand & follow choices about their health and to keep themselves from extinction in a challenging environment.
As such, they have little application in our modern world. Wash your foreskin with soap & water, cook your pork properly, reduce the infant mortality rate by multiple means, etc, and we no longer need this outdated Biblical guidance.
