>Romans 1:26-27

Here's a quote from http://www.godlovesfags.com/glf/bible/bible_says.html

Romans 1:26 and 27, according to most Biblical scholars, condemns all gay and lesbian
activity. Paul criticizes sexual activity which is against a person's nature or disposition. But a
minority of scholars interpret the passage differently: in Greek society of the time,
homosexuality and bisexuality was regarded as a natural activity for some people. Thus Paul
might have been criticizing heterosexuals who were engaged in homosexual activities against
their nature. He might not be referring to homosexuals or bisexuals at all.
The verses preceding 26 might indicate that he was referring to sexual acts associated with
idol worship. The verse is too vague to be interpreted as a blanket prohibition of all same-sex
activities.

>Leviticus 18:22

Do you mix milk and meat? If you're gonna throw the Holiness Code at ppl, you gotta throw the whole thing. And Jesus negated it anyway w/his New Commandment that we love one another as he loved us.

>I Corinthians 10:13

Temptation is a bitch. What?

>I Corinthians 6:11

11 And such were some of you: but
ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified
in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our
God.

That has nothing to do w/the topic at hand.

Know
ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom
of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor
idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind,

That's the verse you mean, I bet. The word you're tripping over is "effeminate" (I take it) and I've learned that in the original text, the word used referred to those of WEAK FAITH. Somehow that became "effeminate" in the KJV and "homosexual" in the NIV. The Greeks didn't have a word for "homosexual" b/c that term didn't exist until the late 1800s.

>Timothy 1: 10-11

10 For whoremongers, for them
that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for
liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing
that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the
glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed
to my trust.

Again, b/c there is no word for "homosexual" in the Greek text, I don't know what the KJV translator was getting at.
