Gay marriage is now legal in several states, and the religious fervor is reaching heights that is usually reserved for the End-Of-Days and Rapture nonsense. I truly am disgusted with the religious cronies that pull out their bible and jump right to the BIG GUNS in the bible and point to
They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”
Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”
Now Lot was quite a guy, wasn’t he? Go ahead and rape my daughter’s, virgins no less just leave my sons alone. Yes always much better to throw the women to the wolves. Then again Lot had a rough road to follow God just really liked messing with him.
Now after that gem the religious folks generally jump to
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
Leviticus really gets into the thou shalt not have sex thing in a big way
“No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the LORD.”
“Do not dishonor your father by having sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother; do not have relations with her.”
“Do not have sexual relations with your father’s wife; that would dishonor your father.”
“Do not have sexual relations with your sister, either your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter, whether she was born in the same home or elsewhere.”
“Do not have sexual relations with your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter; that would dishonor you.”
Now this goes on for quite a while and even covers bestiality, isn’t that special. Here the problem I have with the whole Leviticus thing this same book, Leviticus then claims rabbits chew cud and birds have 4 legs.
There are winged creatures (birds or insects) that go around on all fours.
Now when I went to school birds had two legs and insect have six legs except spiders which have 8 legs.
The rabbit, though it chews the cud, does not have a split hoof; it is unclean for you.
I hate to be a stickler here but rabbits lack the stomach to chew cud that kinda goes to basic biology, like cows, buffalo and camels can chew cud.
Now I am NOT a proponent of bestiality and I am NOT in favor of incest nor would I suggest that ANYONE ever do that. But what really are the differences between men and women? What about these acts make them so wrong?
All of us start out as female, yep guys hate to tell you this but all human fetuses start out as female. The male sperm determines the gender of the child, now the vagania is nothing more than an inverted penis, ovaries are like internal testacies that produce a cell that is fertilized by the male sperm. It’s all a Yin/Yang thing and it’s repeated in nature many times.
Or is it more basic than that is it simply because the act in and of itself is ugly, now the idea of two guys going at it gives me the creeps, but most men, including myself see two women together and we are all smiles, in fact most men encourage that kind of behavior. We tend to have double standards don’t we?
Maybe it because all of us are taught from birth that men act a certain way, and women act another way. Men like women and women like men, we like each other but only as friends and bonding is limited to an “acceptable” relationship.
But maybe there really is a point here worth arguing, maybe just maybe gays and lesbians have a right to choose who they spend their life with. You know I seem to remember a court case that that I heard about when I was in school, it spoke to a person’s right to choose, it’s was called Roe v. Wade.
The court decided that a woman had a right to control her own body, and our Bill of Right say we are all created equal so don’t these same people have that same right to choose who the spend their lives with? Its about the Right to Choose.
I believe the reason Gay marriage is such a controversial issue is because people dislike those who choose a different lifestyle than the one they approve off. But that’s the very essence of a plural society, we accept more than one way of life and one thought and one religion, even though I do enjoy beating up the religious crowd, its just plain fun.
Its why our founders started this show in the first place, experience has taught me that tolerance teaches understanding and with understanding comes acceptance. If we had more acceptance and fewer outrages over one another’s choices the world would be a better place.
