While Christians are busy labeling a group of people who engage in certain behaviors as "abominations", I wonder if he/she realizes how many times over they could rightfully be called an abomination.


Divorce/Adultery

Deuteronomy 24:1-4 "When a man takes a wife and marries her, if then she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, and she departs out of his house, and if she goes and becomes another man's wife, and the latter husband dislikes her and writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter husband dies, who took her to be his wife, then her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after she has been defiled; for that is an abomination before the LORD, and you shall not bring guilt upon the land which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance."


Ezekiel 22:11 One commits abomination with his neighbor's wife; another lewdly defiles his daughter-in-law; another in you defiles his sister, his father's daughter.


Leviticus 7:21 And if any one touches an unclean thing, whether the uncleanness of man or an unclean beast or any unclean abomination, and then eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the LORD's peace offerings, that person shall be cut off from his people."


Love of Money


Jeremiah 6:15 "Were they ashamed when they committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed; they did not know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; at the time that I punish them, they shall be overthrown," says the LORD. (Greed for unjust gain.)


Jeremiah 8:12 Were they ashamed when they committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed; they did not know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among the fallen; when I punish them, they shall be overthrown, says the LORD. (Greed for unjust gain.)

Dietary Abominations

    I was born into a Catholic family. I was raised Catholic. I went to church. I read the Bible. I went to Sunday school. At first, I tried to believe that God was an all knowing, all powerful being that was also all-good. But then I started to grow up. And as I grew up, I started to ask questions. And as I asked questions, I saw that some of the answers did not add up. If God is all good, why did he create evil? If God is all powerful,why does he not stop evil? Those things ran through my mind for a long time.



    Now, I'm not a theologian, nor am I a priest. I'm just an ex-Catholic. Now, the reason I am an ex-Catholic is because I used to be Catholic. Simple. I'll explain. I don't hate the religion. I think that hating a religion is pointless, meaningless, and reveals a lack of personal growth in a person. The religion itself is not the issue, the misuse of the religion is.



    Religion can bring hope, and peace, but if put in the hands of a sociopath, it can bring Inquisitions, Witch Trials, the hunting down, arrest, and killing of thousands, if not millions of women as the church spread its iron fist around the globe and crushed not just the sacred feminine, but any opposing religion. A male based religion is what killed the female based religions. And Christianity was a huge player in...

    Religion can bring hope, and peace, but if put in the hands of a sociopath, it can bring Inquisitions, Witch Trials, the hunting down, arrest, and killing of thousands, if not millions of women as the church spread its iron fist around the globe and crushed not just the sacred feminine, but any opposing religion. A male based religion is what killed the female based religions. And Christianity was a huge player in this planned and calculated assassination. But explaining that would take far too long. Ultimately what is important to say, is that the current Bible we know today, is quite possibly the millionth edition, translation ,re-printing. No one knows what the "Original" or "Master" text says, and many of the translations were swayed by the political climate of the time.



    A lot of people here pointed out that people do not really follow the Bible, and I will say that for the most part, this is true. If you look at people who are homophobic, the quote they love using most is Leviticus 18:22, followed then by Leviticus 20:13. Now, why don't these same people condemn the eating of lobster or shrimp? Planting wheat and barley in the same furrow? Wearing clothing of blended materials? Why don't these people stop eating pork? Why don't they sell their daughters into sexual slavery, or own slaves or stone adulterers? There are many things that Leviticus deemed an abomination, and many laws and rules in the Old Testament that were later retconned in the New Testament and thus "ignored." And yet, that same one shows up, every single, time. Leviticus. Over and over. And those people are the "wrong hand" type of people that would cause genocides, that would rape, and murder, and kill, and then point at the Bible and say "The Bible said it was fine."



    The Bible has nearly one million passages. Why is it that the anti-gay side only seems to pick on less than 5 that specifically condemn homosexuals? And I said "SPECIFICALLY" because many of the quotes used by the anti-gay do not even mention homosexuality (which as a side note, was added later to the Bible, much like Jesus as not just the son of God but God himself, and the trinity; both of those decisions made by the Roman Catholic Church years after the church was already being formed) are interpretations. The many quotes they use, many are interpretations, or mistranslations.



    I know of one person, who whenever I tell her "Jesus never condemned homosexuality", all she can always retort with is "Well Jesus never condemned pedophilia, does that mean thats ok?" Not only is that an asinine and idiotic statement, but it shows a true level of ignorance that I did not believe was attainable by human beings.



    The real point, is that yes, you can believe that Jesus existed. You can believe that Jesus is the son of God (or if you wish to believe in the additions by the Roman Catholic Church, that Jesus also IS God.) You can choose to believe that Mary was a pure virgin who birthed a child in a time where a girl getting pregnant before being married meant a definite death by stoning, and that she just didn't "Stick to her story" so as not to get killed. You can believe that God is all knowing, all powerful, and all good. You can believe whatever you want to believe. But, that belief is for you and you alone. Religion is a personal experience. It is between you and your god, not you , god and the guy down the street. It is for you to use in your life, in the privacy of your home. To love God, and Jesus, and pray, and worship, and praise to your heart's content. It is NOT to be used as a weapon against people whom you dislike or disapprove of. It is NOT to be used to enforce your will on others.



    I live in the United States. And these United States are a secular nation. We have a freedom of religion BUT we also have a freedom FROM religion. And the words of the Bible mean about as much to the United States Constitution, about as much as the words of the Torah, or the Koran. Yes, you can pray to it, you can praise it, you can worship it, but do not force those beliefs on others. Your right to believe ends where the rights of the person next to you begin.

    i have been reading the comments on this board and i am floored. I bet you most or all of you are no older that 40 to 60 and as young as 18 and it seems that you got all the answers about god, the bible, christians ect ect. Like RYAN, he says: "that God did not make them;(abominations) i think that they were the creation of man in order to control people and justify it as the word of God. Why would God tell you to burn someone at the stake because they say some words that rhyme, or because they do all this other ridiculous stuff. I do believe homosexuality is an abomination, because it goes against nature, but that doesn't give me the right to hurt or hate someone because they are that way. Does it? No".. What!? .. and TEWAZ1 he says: "I wanted to point out that, by any definition of natural, homosexuality is indeed natural. If, by natural you mean, "occurs in nature," I can assure you, homosexuality most certainly does occur in nature. This is verifiable and well documented"... HUN!??... Let me Start of by stating this i am a devoted christian and very open minded. i am scratching my head and wondering why would someone say that they "THINK" abominations were man made to control people and justify it as the word of god and further state that the homo lifestyle ( notice i said...&&&

"is he a he or a she?" .. "did jesus really exist? and if so, was he really raised from the dead?" .. "was man really made from dirt?" .. was man's rib used to make a woman?" and " did a snake really talk to eve?".. "How can a round earth sit suspended in open space with nothing holding it, hold water?".. "if some people say that a big explosion caused MARS, VENUS, THE MOON, THE SUN & PLUTO to form ,when the earth was form why are their living things on the earth and not on NO OTHER PLANETS? & did the explosion cause seeds to form and grow trees? and if so, why not on the other planets?".. "how were the animals created? Did a cell from the water grow and multipliy in to a male and female animal?" the list goes on and on. but, the one thing i notice after reading these posted there were no answers. umm. i wonder why? look, I'm not writing to slam non believers nor am i trying to convert anyone, i want to set the record straight about us christians, christian means " christ like " and even if the bible says that jesus Christ was perfect, we were not because the bible states that we all were born in to sin so we were all sinners. So for anyone who believes that all Christian's want to do is " push " there faith ( not religion ) down their throat's or hate people because they don't pratice what we do or not do, is fooling themselves because that not what we are all about. we are taught through the word of god to hate the sin not the sinner and even though in the old testament most people were killed or condemned for their sins which god ordered, the new testament shows teaches us a different way to deal with people through the teaching & death of Christ. now, don't get me wrong everyone has the rights, liberty and freedom to live, pratice and teach what ever they want and i don't have a problem with that, the problem that i do have is hearing and seeing people complaining and tearing down christians about pushing religion down their throats and on their children in school and co-workers at work. Well i have read a post that someone was glad to be a pagan, DING DING!! i have to bust your bubble but paganism is a form of religion and it is one of and might i said the main religions practiced today ( tattoo wearing, sexual immorality, drinking, etc etc ) and TEWAZ1 ? you can do the research on that now we as christians are getting that push down our throats each and everyday and one of the greatest things about it is we are strong enough to deal with it and we turn away from it. but it seems to me that the people on here , well, not so good we are a treat to you and it seem to me that you are scared and quite frankly i don't can see why. you see i understand, i understand that every person who lives here in the U.S. loves the fact that they have the freedom to live, act, practice, believe, think, anyway theywant to, if you want to be a gay man, woman, or child then go ahead, if you want to practice every abomination know to man then go ahead, understand that god have given every man, woman, child, beast or fowl a free will. but also understand this there is a price you will pay for the freedom and free will you so strongly desire and when that time comes YOU WILL have to pay up whether you believe it or not.

    It's not about what is and isn't an abomination.
    It's about what abominations you don't like.
    If you think one of the abomination passages is going to cramp your style, just pull the "New Testament" card.

    Trouble with this arguement is it will breakdown into a Old vs. New Testament thing...or even a Christian vs. Atheist thing. If you are looking a this from a Christian standpoint you must ask yourself, how much of the old testament is simply Jewish law? And keep in mind I say this is a Taoist who was raised Christian. If you are looking at it as a non-believer I need to know, what exactly is your point? Because while I risk getting attacked be zealots for even questioning your motivations, I would never insist on impossing my personal interpretations on others. I simply do not believe, God (if you choose to define the creative force as such) speaks to one person with the truth for all people...and one must also remember what the people are like in the part of the world where the Bible was written. Not trying to offend anyone, I have mad respect for the teaching of Jesus, I am just saying he was like a light in a mineshaft for the attitudes in that part of the world at that time.

    When Jesus who is life is in you he becomes flesh and blood in you because you are flesh and blood. Satan talks through people today too. When he does no one is blessed at all. The same it was their fault game is played out in humans today too. Had they accepted the blame humbling themselves Satan would not have contaminated their soul.

    The pork one was for safety reasons. Pork if not cooked right is dangerous! The clothing one in difficult to interpet today. Male and female clothing are so different from each other today but they weren't quite as different way back in the day. So we have to be careful when interpeting the Bible particularly the Torah.

    I think some of these are ridiculous, and that God did not make them; i think that they were the creation of man in order to control people and justify it as the word of God. Why would God tell you to burn someone at the stake because they say some words that rhyme, or because they do all this other ridiculous stuff. I do believe homosexuality is an abominaion, because it goes against nature, but that doesn't give me the right to hurt or hate someone because they are that way. Does it? No

    Ryan, thank you for being civil and respectful. It is so rare in these discussions anymore.
    I wanted to point out that, by any definition of natural, homosexuality is indeed natural.
    If, by natural you mean, "occurs in nature," I can assure you, homosexuality most certainly does occur in nature. This is verifiable and well documented.
    As a biology major I have studied this extensively. Same sex pairings occur and have been well documented in nearly every species on the planet.
    There is a distinction to make here, though. Many feel that homosexuality goes against nature because it goes against their own nature, and they assume that everyone else's nature corresponds to their own. If everyone felt the repulsion for homosexuality by nature that some do, no one would be homosexual. Indeed, many homosexuals feel the same repulsion for heterosexual affection.
    I hope this makes sense and serves to clarify things a bit.

    It is something that frustrated me for so long. People would condemn homosexuals for being unnatural. After explaining what I did above about homosexuality being completely natural, they would go on to state that humans are better than animals and should not model their behavior on them.
    The seeming obliviousness of those who seemed to be stating one thing, and then completely about facing on it when it didn't correspond to their view was astonishing to me. The only thing I can figure is that by nature they are speaking of what comes naturally for them. I must say, though, if someone is incapable of conceiving of someone feeling differently than them, there must be a problem with some internal process that allows empathy. Not being able to fathom the motivations of others unless they mirror one's own motivations is a serious social problem.
    P.S. Ryan, if you read this, I am most certainly not referring to you. You have so far given me no reason to believe that you condemn homosexuals. Quite the opposite, actually.

    Satan in people condemns people. Satan is easily seen in people knowing what he does. Jesus saves people. The sodomites surrounding Lots house wanted to condemn Lot and two angels in his house. The homosexual does not want to condemn anyone.
