Catholics fight homosexuality, but Jesus never said anything about it

Jesus never said anything about homosexuality.  Not one.  Ever.  It wasn’t on His priority list.

However, Catholics (and most other Christians) fight it because it requires no sacrifice, and because they love telling other people what to do.  It makes them feel like they are superior.

What is the biblical basis for fighting homosexuality?  Most of it comes from the book of Leviticus, which documented the laws of the Levites at the time.  In Leviticus 20:13, it says

  • “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable”.   Some translations say “abominable” instead of “detestable”.
However, Leviticus uses the EXACT same word is used by Leviticus to describe eating shrimp and lobster in Leviticus 11:10.
  • Leviticus 11:6-8 says you can’t touch a dead pig’s carcass, so football is out of the question.
  • Leviticus 19:27 says do not trim off the hair on your temples or trim your beards
  • Leviticus 19:26 says you can’t eat meat that has not been drained of its blood, so order it at least medium well
  • Leviticus 25:44 states that you may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are from neighboring nations, so having Mexican slaves is cool, but only for US residents
 If Catholics fighting the gays, they should also fight to boycott
  • Red Lobster
  • NFL Football
  • Gillette razors
  • Morton’s Steak House if they allow heathens  to order meat medium

If you don’t want to do it yourselves, have your Mexican slaves do it for you.

Other bizarre Leviticus quotes:

  • Leviticus 20:9 “For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.”
    • so you should kill a child who swears at you?
  • Leviticus 26:30 “And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.”

Clearly, these were laws at the time, some of which were bizarre, but some of which might have been based on their limited knowledge of science and sociology.

At that time, it might have made sense for homosexuality to be against the law, since they might have been worried about the survival of the species.  Now, with our over populated earth, we should not longer care, and should focus on things Jesus did talk about, like curing hunger, which Catholics could do for 10 cents per Catholic per day.
