You are taking the side of a "minority" of scholars because it serves your purposes. Sexual acts with idol worshipers? C'mon.

A lot of people think that the whole old testament is negated - wrong. Your claim may have some validity if verses condemning homosexualiy in the new testament were not there. You're saying that homosexuality is OK because the book of Leviticus is mute? There other verses in the New Testament
>>I Corinthians 10:13 > >Temptation is a bitch. What?
This one is basically saying that homosexuals can be forgiven for their sins if they repent.

Yes, I know homosexual is a greek term, but how is effeminate weak faith. I need to see the original hebrew text.

Believe it or not, I'm actually trying to understand you. You said you prayed ernestly for a year and nothing happened? Hmmm. So you decided to give up on the whole religion thing? No?
