Even though the Bible has numerous references to homosexual activity, many Christians believe that God hates fags.. Of course they often ignore the fact that Jesus participated in what could only be called "man-boy love" and one of God's most favored men, King David, was a "flaming fag" himself. Now I myself think that people can do whatever they want. If God hates fags, then he never should have made the potential for genetic diversity. Christians are afraid to learn that homosexuality is due to genetics because that makes it God's fault. Ask the next one you see why God makes Downs Syndrome children or any other genetic mutation, and they'll duck and dodge, falling back behind the curtain of "the mysteries of God."0 Replies 219 weeks
The biblically famous David had a homosexual relationship with King Saul's son, Jonathan. When they first met, they became "soul mates" in an encounter best described as "love at first site" (1 Samuel 18:1-5). Jonathon loved David even more than his own father, putting himself in harms way to protect the life of his lover, David (1 Samuel 19:1-7). King Saul became jealous of David and was determined to kill him. This made Jonathan so upset that he couldn't eat. Jonathan then snuck off to a field to lay with David, holding him in his arms, kissing and weeping like the lovesick couple they were (1 Samuel 20:31-42). When Jonathan's father, King Saul, found out about the homosexual affair, he confronted Jonathan with the fact that he knew that he was gay and then he blamed it on Jonathan's mother, calling her "perverse" and "rebellious" (1 Samuel 20:30). Later when Jonathan died, David admitted that [Jonathan's] "love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women." (2 Samuel 1:25-26) The Bible claims that homosexuality was a punishment which God gave to those who worshiped idols or committed other forms of blasphemy. (Romans 1:18-27).
Indeed the Bible is full of anti-homosexual laws, claiming that homosexuals are in the same class as thieves and murderers (1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 1 Timothy 1:8-11, Leviticus 18:22, 20:13).
The Bible even condemns cross-dressing, calling transvestites an abomination! (Deuteronomy 22:5)
Jesus' homosexual activity has been demonstrated in modern theater and cinema and can be traced to actual biblical passages. From the modern Christian model, we can assume that Jesus loved all of his disciples, yet the Bible specifically describes one disciple as "the disciple that Jesus loved" (John 19:26, 20:2, 21:7,20). This disciple is described as "lying on Jesus' breast" at the last supper (John 13:23, 25). What Jesus did with this specific disciple to earn him the title "the disciple that Jesus loved" can only be imagined but it's not too difficult to get a pretty clear picture seeing them snuggling with each other in public. Jesus himself was a homo. This is further supported by scriptures which describe Jesus displaying inappropriate behavior for a man to be showing to other men, such as lust (Mark 10:21), suggesting that men should be kissing him (Luke 7:45), describing men sharing the same bed (Luke 17:34), etc.
When Jesus was in the garden of Gethsemane, he left his disciples who were sleeping and went off, returning several times to check on them (Mark 14:37-41). When Jesus came back after the third time, there was a young man following him with only a linen cloth wrapped around his naked body. When the guards tried to grab the young man after grabbing Jesus, the young man dropped the cloth and ran off naked (Mark 14:51-52). Who was this scantily clad young streakier and why was he returning with Jesus? What had Jesus REALLY been doing with a naked young man that night in the garden? The "Secret Gospel of Mark", known from early Church father, Clement of Alexandria's (150-230 C.E.) letter to Theodorus contains excerpts which include the following
"...the young man, looking at Jesus, loved him and began to beseech him that he might be with him...they went into the house of the
