Default Re: Gay/Les/Bi-Sexual/Straight

As I may be straight... I have plenty of friends that I know online that are indeed bisexual or gay/lesbian. I do reckon that they should be given equal rights, this is definately one of the things that really do need to be fixed on Earth. Everyone has the right to like whoever they wish to, there is nothing wrong with someone liking the same gender, nor is there anything wrong with being bisexual either. I just think it's just a wonderful thing that our human race has evolved to do, I wonder if our ancestors of the human race has ever been into liking the same gender or being bisexual? I think it's only normal for humans to like any gender they choose to. ^^

It's just amazing how the life on Planet Earth is like, it's just so wonderful... and they're all beautiful in their own way. :)

They never had the opportunity to objectively look at the original text with the language in the correct context, and form their own interpretation of what it means. Frankly, unless you can read Hebrew and read the original Hebrew bible, neither did you. Few people have. Nowhere in the Bible is homosexuality explicitly condemned, except in one particular instance which is, as a point of fact, either a mistranslation or a translation lost to time (I'm unaware if the word "abomination" was ever actually equivalent to "teovah" during the evolution of Latin or English). The people teaching religious studies, as well as all the other Christians and Orthodox Jews who go on about this, are really just parroting what they're told (Muslims I'm going to give a pass on this one since their book isn't supposed to be studied in its translated form, is meant to be taken literally, and most likely says something different, of which I am not aware.)

The original Torah was written in Aramaic, not in Hebrew. And all the Abrahamic religions, hell, ALL RELIGIONS in general are all simple interpretations of nature, human interaction, etc.

And, as I am a history and technology buff, the ancient Greeks fully accepted homosexual tendencies, and even allowed men to marry each other.
