Are Homosexuals and eating Pigs allowed in the Bible?
This is a topic that I just thought about. I am not in anyway trying to insult Homosexuals, even though Islam highly prohibits Homosexuality. Below, you will see how both the Homosexuals and Pigs' cases are linked together in the Bible.
I was surprised to learn that most of the Christians that I encountered on the internet have no problem with homosexuality and don't think that there is anything wrong with it in the Bible. Their main point is that homosexuality was never addressed in the New Testament, thus practicing it is a matter of a choice.
Some even go into extremes by saying that Jesus never got married and Paul discouraged men to marry women; "Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to marry. (From the NIV Bible, 1 Corinthians 7:1)" To them, since this is the case, then men marrying men should not be prohibited in the New Testament and Christianity.
Even though the Old Testament never addressed Lesbianism, but several Christians that I met in person oppose to Homosexuality because to them it is prohibited in the OT; "'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. (From the NIV Bible, Leviticus 20:13)"
As I said, the OT never addressed Lesbianism, and the Pro-Homosexuality Christians of www.godlovesfags.com elaborated on this point. We even see many Verses in the OT where men and women are separated in laws and punishments. Take this example:
"IF A MAN has sexual relations with an animal, he must be put to death, and you must kill the animal. (From the NIV Bible, Leviticus 20:15)"
"IF A WOMAN approaches an animal to have sexual relations with it, kill both the woman and the animal. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. (From the NIV Bible, Leviticus 20:16)"
Notice in the above two verses that the man has to get caught having sex with an animal in order for him to be put to death, while the woman does not necessarily have to get caught having sex with an animal. If she only looks suspicious then she would still be put to death, while the man has to be caught doing it. Anyway, to many Christians, Lesbianism is ok since it was never addressed anywhere in the Bible.
But as to those folks who do oppose to Homosexuality in the Bible and rely on Leviticus 20:13 as the Anti-Homosexuality Christians of www.godhatesfags.com to support their argument, I have this question for them:
Since you use the Old Testament to prohibit Homosexuality which was never addressed in the New Testament, then how about prohibiting the eating of Pig's meat products such as ham, bacon, pork chops, etc...?
The Old Testament clearly says "And the pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you. (From the NIV Bible, Leviticus 11:7-8)".
So, if you're going to prohibit Homosexuality from your Christian perspective, then there goes also your Easter and Christmas Ham and Bacon, and Barbecue Pork Chops. Otherwise, you're a selective hypocrite!
