Java,

How do you interpret passages like this:

Lev 18:22 "Do not lie with man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable"


I'm neither Java nor gay but I can't help noting that the following is from the next chapter of leviticus.

Lev 19:12 "Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you."

There is also Lev 19:19 "Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woolen come upon thee."

Why do you folks focus on the homosexuals and not on clam chowder or mixed fabric clothing? Is it because heterosexuals like clams and fashionwear but not homosexuals and so selectively quote their bible?

Seems a bit unfair.

Seems to this objective observer that most Christians interpret much of Leviticus as being relevant to a specific people at a specific time, and not to be take literally today. Except for the part about homosexuals. Curious.

IMO, if you use Leviticus to condemn homosexuals but still eat shrimp, you've joined the hypocrite club.
