My lady love shared something off Facebook this morning that I can’t seem to let go of, and it’s too late to retrieve it and give credit where credit is due, so I’ll take it for myself.
In any event, since new interpretations to old Biblical texts are such a hobby horse of mine   tongue wink
I feel compelled to share this with folks, I’m sure someone will appreciate it.  cheese

Well, it’s definitely true of a guy I know.  He and his boyfriend smoke more pot than any two human beings I have ever known.

A book you may find interesting:  Bible Myths and their Paralllels in Other Religions Being a Comparison of the Old and New Testament.  by T.W. Doane.  I was able to down load it free from Kindle.

Leviticus 18:22 KJV: “Thou salt not lie with mankind as with with womankind”

That is okay, I don’t “lie” with womankind as I do mankind, because I only lie with men wink


———-

Levticus 20:13

“‘If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Oh that sounds like a peaceful, loving religion that I want to follow.
