Thanks for posting this, Locke. I've had thoughts along many of these same lines over the years, especially the corrupting influence of "teams" and a theory I've held for many years that religion began as a tool for social order that was successful and was passed on like any other useful physical or social trait. Interesting to see them come out of the mouth of a professional psychologist.
I was once a normal kid
Till the Devil came down and flipped my lid
He gave me a switchblade and he gave me a muse
Then he vomited acid all over my shoes
Really bro? It's pretty clearly stated. There is NO WAY to misinterpret it.
Leviticus 18:22 - Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.
Romans 1:27 - And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind
Effeminate: (of a man) having or showing characteristics regarded as typical of a woman; unmanly.
Leviticus 20:13 - If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature
Looks pretty plain and simple to me. Homosexuality is WRONG. There is no way to misinterpret what the bible says. It's honestly plain as day.
Alright guys lets try not to send this thread off the deep end by getting into religion.
If you don't believe in it, then that's your choice. Sorry for you.
