Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay
I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:
Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.
I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.
I’m a Christian and I approve this message.
also when Jesus died it worked as more or less a “get out of the Old Testament free” card for Christians (or so later Roman theologians decided, because people didn’t want to convert if they had to cut off bits of their dicks to do it). so p much none of those rules in leviticus apply.
