Must not quote what the Bible says about homosexuality

Filipino sportsman in trouble
   
Manny Pacquiao has found himself at the center of fresh controversy after posting a Bible verse saying homosexual men should be killed.

The post on the boxer's Instagram page appeared on Thursday, just hours after he issued a groveling apology for saying gay people were 'worse than animals' - which led to him being dropped by sponsor Nike.

Written alongside a since-deleted picture showing Pacquiao with wife Jinkee, he quotes Leviticus, saying: 'Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

'If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.'

The post attracted more than 18,000 likes before being deleted around 3am (EST) on Thursday, according to ABS CBN News.

In the post 37-year-old Pacquiao also quoted a passage from Luke which seemed to be aimed at critics who blasted his initial comments.

He wrote: 'Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and reject you and insult your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.  'Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.'

Pacquiao has been in the media spotlight since Tuesday when he was being interviewed on a TV show in his home country of the Philippines, where he is running for a Senate seat.

In the TV interview, Pacquiao said: ' Do you see animals mating with the same sex? If men mate with men and women mate with women they are worse than animals'

The sportsman, known as Pacman, faced a huge public backlash for the comments.

The born-again Christian has been campaigning on the back of conservative views in his homeland, where gay marriage is outlawed due to strong opposition from the Catholic Church.

Homosexuals and their fellow travelers are vicious when anyone dares to criticize their repugnant perverse sexual activities.

The standard gay retort to these types of comments is to take Mosaic Law out of context and ask you is you eat shellfish or wear clothes made from two different substances (eg cotton and nylon blends).
They are quick to ignore the fact that the prohibition on sexual immorality is reaffirmed in the New Testament while the strictures of ritual cleanliness in the Mosaic Law is specifically rejected.

Good point.

Yep - just pick and choose what you like or don't like about different parts of the Bible!

Views expressed in the so-called 'New Testament' were by Jews (like Saul/Paul) who obviously still believed in the Jewish Law as expressed in the so-called 'Old Testament', so those views remained just the same as regards "men-on-men" sex as being a non-Jewish and therefore to be different from "pagan" practices like the Greek/Romans or the earlier civilizations confronted by the Jews.

Jesus defined marriage as between a man and woman, and referred to it further in parables and analogies as being a lesser representation of a greater marriage, union or coming together, of great difficult to fathom concepts or forces. Paul also spoke of this mysterious union between body and self, between man and woman, and between the Church and Christ. (Personally, I think it is the coming together of human freewill with the love of God, in the individual, in marriage, and in the church, and each being reflective of and a vehicle for individual, mutual and collective coming together of those two great forces. And the son of man being the eventual product of that union.) Christian scripture is essentially the teaching of faith, prayer and love, and particularly forgiveness, which could not have sprung from any other religion than one with a one God concept and one of law of right and wrong. At the time, that was only Judaism. So they are not contradictory, but complimentary, and the second inevitable upon the first. Christian love is not blind to wrongs or sins, but forgiving of them, meaning it loves regardless and is helpful. We can acknowledge sin and dislike some people, but we can still love/forgive and be helpful where help can help. Leftists don't understand that love/goodwill is irrespective of like and dislike, because to them love is just further like, and hate is just further dislike, and they assume others also hate those they dislike. Leftists only have and can only comprehend those two emotional options - like/love and dislike/hate. They fake being non-judgement and caring for all, but its just a pretence, it is not in the centre of their hearts. When Jesus taught his followers goodwill and how to love, those who were not his follows learnt how to fake it (I John 2:19), and others in between would mistake it and grade it (Luke 12:51-53). I agree with Manny quoting Luke 6:22. When lefties see us as their enemy, it can mean we are doing something right. They are not a navigational landmark though, for they are mobile, but they are an inevitable opposition to truthfulness, to the concept of freewill and individual accountability, and to genuine goodwill.

1:23 = pulpit prolix!

The didactic dove is just putting a fanciful religious gloss on mere mating behavior and the cultural forms it takes - and then launches into an irrelevant and meandering rant.

Anyone can use the Luke 6:22-type argument to address any opposition in such a self-serving way!
