Members of the religious right and social conservatives have used biblical scripture to condemn homosexuality as an “abomination” and to justify their vehement opposition to same-sex unions.
However, many people like political neophyte Bristol Palin, purposely evade and omit topics such as fornication, babies born out of wedlock and other sexual perversions that God also frowned upon or condemned and that is clearly outlined in the scriptures. While they harshly criticize one type of sexual behavior, they feel nonetheless free to engage in iniquity with aplomb. It would be noteworthy if the names of powerful people, lawmakers and decision-makers who patronize and or frequent porn shops, porn sites and who engaged in bestiality, sodomy and sadomasochism were kept on file, much like when people purchase firearms in a gun shop.
This is not an endorsement of any particular sexual orientation. But it is interesting what passages are used to condemn and oppress while others are conspicuously overlooked by those who hate members of the LGBT community. They even make the connection was God’s way of punishing the nation for its acceptance of homosexuality.
Let’s check out some of the bible versus most often unearthed when the topic of homosexuality is broached.
