Men always try to justify sins with reasoning, interpretation, and enlightened thinking. This applies to more than just homosexuality.
People are quick to say the bible is outdated and we are living in different times. While this is true, we as humans suffer some of the same battles from many years ago. The Bible is cut and cry and CLEAR on this issue.
Reference Genesis 19:1-38
SUMMARY...The city of Sodom (you know like sodomy, anal sex) & Gomorrah was a wicked city. One day two angels came into the city and Lot welcomed them graciously, offering them a place to stay. The angels declined, as they wanted to go to the center of the city. After Lot insisted, they finally agreed and ate dinner with Lot and his family.
The men of the city, young and old, came to Lot's house, knocking on his door like the police, telling Lot to bring those men down so that may have relations (read: sex) with them. Lot begged and pleaded with these men of the city not to do such a thing, he even offered his virgin daughters to them, to do as they wish! They refused and rushed Lot! The angels grabbed Lot, and struck the men with blindness.
They told Lot to hide your kids, and hide your wife (the irony), to take his family out and away from the city and valley because they were about to destroy this place, that the outcry (read: blasphemy) was so great it had reached the Lord. Lot hesitated so the angels grabbed Lot and his family and rushed them out the city, with the Lord waiting until they got out to destroy it, by mercy. Once they were to safety, the Lord rained down fire and burning sulphur on that city and the villages around it wiping out everything and everybody. Lot's wife looked back, and turned to salt.
Abraham woke up early the next morning and saw smoke rising from the destroyed cities like a furnace.
In short: I will not be turned into a block of Lawry's Roasted Garlic & Parsley Seasoning Salt for the sake of men.
I am also surprised that as black women, with so many odds already stacked against you (single parent households, absentee fathers, exorbitant amount of black men in jail) that many of you are for it.
Will there come a day that you or your daughters, or your daughters daughters will result in sleeping with your father just to bare children or feel the love of a man? No? Oh.
Different times, same issues.
Genesis 19:31-3631 One
day the older daughter said to her sister, “There are no men left
anywhere in this entire area, so we can’t get married like everyone
else. And our father will soon be too old to have children. 32 Come,
let’s get him drunk with wine, and then we will have sex with him. That
way we will preserve our family line through our father.”
that night they got him drunk with wine, and the older daughter went in
and had intercourse with her father. He was unaware of her lying down
or getting up again.
next morning the older daughter said to her younger sister, “I had sex
with our father last night. Let’s get him drunk with wine again tonight,
and you go in and have sex with him. That way we will preserve our
family line through our father.” 35 So
that night they got him drunk with wine again, and the younger daughter
went in and had intercourse with him. As before, he was unaware of her
lying down or getting up again. 36
As a result, both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their own father.
