Well for the purposes of this discussion just pretend you believe in the bible stories OK !!!! Have you heard or read of the story where Jesus was supposed to have healed the Roman Centurians Servant boy? (its in both Matthew and Luke of the bible) According to the story the Centurian came to Jesus and requested that he please heal his beloved servant, the Centurian even suggested that he was unworthy to entertain Jesus in his home, and that Jesus could just speak the word from where he was and that his servant would be healed. Jesus was said to have then turned to those near him and exclaimed that he had never seen such faith before, then turned back to the Centurian and said, let your servant be healed according to your faith, and the story tells that at that moment the servant boy was healed. OK, here is the PROBLEM, christian preachers repeatedly tell this story as an example of the faith their parishioners should have. What they don't tell is that according to custom in those days and according to translations of the words used, its probable that the servant boy was the Centurians young lover. Jesus didn't asked if they were homosexual lovers before he healed the boy. Doesn't this shoot holes in christianity's theory that the bible and God is against homosexuality? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Just for the heck of it I recently did a search (Roman Centurian and his servant lover) both at Google, and Wikipedia, and there are all kinds of professional writings about the probability of this being a homosexual relationship. What do you think !!! is it likely that the Roman Centurian and his Servant were lovers?
