Anti-Homosexuality In The Bible a Mistranslation?
I think most Christian's are completely going up the wrong tree when it comes to anti-homosexuality. Considering that the bible is a translation from the original language many errors can be made obviously. So basing the word of God, from the translated word of man, seems a bit ridiculous, not to mention if God really wanted his message out there, wouldn't he give his word to people of all languages?

Anyway, I don't think Christian's are supposed to be anti-gay, since from what I have read of the bible, there is only a brief verse on 'thou shalt not lay with another man', but mostly it is anti forced sodomy (Prison rape for example, it is a show of dominance rather than love making.) Since back in Jacob's time, there was a lot of forced sodomy just like the environment of a prison. So it's very likely that there is a mistranslation where it was meant to be anti-forced sodomy rather than consensual homosexuality. It can be easily confused. I think it might be interesting thing to bring up when talking to Christians.

Who gives a shit? Bring it up, they dodge it, and then they find asshats like you trying to argue against homosexuality without the bible in the most bassackwards way possible.

Such utter crap. You have clue what was happening "back in Jacob's time". Jacob was a mythological character.
You seem to enjoy making a fool of yourself.

Why bring it up in the name of random conversation? You know what I talk to my christian friend about every week we visit one another?

The next Metal Gear game.

Point I'm representing is bias communication is a waste of time and valuable resources, and also an existence. Save arguments for where they require ground; debates and the internet.

Leviticus does not justify stupidity, but it is more than enough to define corruption of the human mind.

No. It's pretty clear. In the OT, Moses instructs against homosexuality, and in the NT, Paul instructs against it.

...I... what? How do you know that?

And no. There isn't a mistranslation. First, learn some language history.

Sodomy was in a denotative sense GAY BUTT SEX BECAUSE YOU'RE GAY.

Playing semantic games with the language based on modern language idiosyncrasies is beyond bunk. Sodomy was homosexuality. Period.
