Your drunk. How do you get a homosexual relationship from that? Clearly you don't know how to interpret the bible at all. It's common knowledge that the term "knew" is a reference to sex. It does not say that Jonathan "knew" or "came to know" David. It says "Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul ". How do you get homosexuality from that? Have you bothered to look how "knit with one's soul" is used in other parts of the bible? What context do they use it in? I am in the process of my writing my response that I mentioned before.
