SELECTIVE BIBLE READING: Sexual Repression of Convenience
SELECTIVE BIBLE READING
The Bibel´s paramount opinion on the subject of homosexuality is negative, to say the least, and the practise regarded as an abomination to be punsihed with the capital punishment in the three Abrahamic religions
”Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." (Leviticus 18:22)
Sapphic love, however, is not mentioned because it is either unthinkable or intensly uninteresting since women are regarded as inferior to men. The global existence of a singular male with multiple female partners. whether in a clan organized Nomad or Transhumans culture or, in regal environments with imperial sovereigns sexually served by concubines or maitresses in harems or at court, the latter a forced surplus with status connotations, the previous a necessity because of the shortage of men lost in constant tribal or clan feuds.
It seems discgracefully convenient to the vast majority of us to skip Leviticus 18:20 stating
”Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife and defile yourself with her”
and to ignore further down
The punishments are just as severe as if practising homosexuality and the patterns of behaviour equally abonimable in the eyes of the Old Testament God.
Selective reading of the Bible is commonplace. The impact of a capital punishment of unfaithful and cheating spouses would literally reduce 50 % or more of the sexually active adult global population !!!
The Bible texts on Sodom and Gomorra do not focus on homosexuality solely but also on extralegal fornification, sexual vices and promiscuity in general. Since the latter practise, heterosexual infidelity, is far more common than homosexual in numeric proportions, we ignore it because maybe we have all been there or at least thought about it which is, according to the Bible, just as bad.
For all gaybashers and the responsibles of hatecrimes there´s a whole new world out there to kill or maime, namely the majority of the global adult population which have pre marital sexual relations, who marry, divorce and find new partners through out life, if you are a keen follower of the Old Testament and the apostle Paulus who, as far as I know, is the most severe homophobe and a foe of sexuality in general .in the New Testament.
And if you ever have satisfied yourself, remember you are just as bad. Any one left to survive?
