The Bible Says So!

If you know me - then you know I will not stand for such a preposterous line...

I have had my own battles with the church....I was raised Roman Catholic, went to Lutheran and Baptist schools and made up my own mind for myself years ago.

But, there are always those who must disagree with me whether it's about abortion, homosexuality or even evolution. And their argument? "Because it says so in the Bible!"

Here's my answer for anyone who feels the need to tell me how wrong it is to be other words God Hates Fags....and from here on out any and all discussions merged at me regarding the above or any Biblical 'abomination' shall be given this link.

Do you know what else is an abomination according to the Bible? Not treating your body like a temple. And ladies should have their head covered. And in Deuteronomy, a marriage is only valid if the woman is a virgin..she should be executed if she is not. And anyone who commits adultery should be stoned to death.

In Mark, divorce is prohibited. I assume for homosexuality, the most common referred to 'proof' of discourse for it in the Bible is Leviticus 18:6 "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female. It is an abomination." A similar verse is written two chapters later, in Leviticus 20:13 "A man who sleeps with another man is an abomination and should be executed."

Leviticus is a holiness cod written thousands of years ago. It also includes prohibitions against round haircuts, tattoos, working on the Sabbath, wearing garments of mixed fabrics, eating pork or shellfish, getting your fortune told and even playing with the skin of a pig - There goes FOOTBALL!

I believe in morality - doing right regardless of what I am told. Not in religion - doing what I am told regardless of what is right. Everyone is welcome to their own interpretation of the Bible and of politics, of course I need more than "The Bible Says So" to justify certain things in this world and certainly to judge them.

Someone once said, "It should be considered a crime against nature.what would happen to us as a species if everyone in the world turned gay,extinction." Really? The WHOLE world would be gay? First of all...we don't TURN gay...we are born gay or straight. It is predetermined. The world is not square and humans aren't made of clay...get the picture?
