This is why I tear up everytime during our national anthem
And it all worked out
This is a really old joke that I had heard about, I think it was Colorado, back when the legalized both gay marriage and marijuana.
The original Bible didn't say man, it was child.
The Bible said don't be a paedophile.
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, I have questions for the person who downvoted you
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, except that’s a complete lie. Not only does the Bible not explicitly condemn pedophilia, but it does condemn homosexual relations multiple times.
Leviticus 18:22: “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination”
I disagree with the Bible and think it’s BS, but it really does say that men shall be forbidden from engaging in intimate relations with other men quite specifically.
As for “original” Bible, there is no original. There’s no manuscript for the Bible. It was passed on through the first few hundred years of its existence via oral tradition. It is not known who the authors were or exactly when it was written.
@TriangleTesticles, I downvoted him because he’s wrong.
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, why are you being downvoted? You're right lol
@Kaywinnet, no, he’s actually not.
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, by the way, pedophelia not being explicitly condemned by the Bible is a huge part of why priests raping children is such a big problem and has been for many years.
Their holy book forbids them from having sex with women or men, so they think doing it with kids is a loophole.
@I Are Lebo, if you say so lol
@Kaywinnet, dude, I even posted the words of the verse he’s mistakenly referring to. He’s wrong. The Bible goes so far as to say that two men being intimate is an abomination. That’s pretty harsh, and very specific.
@Kaywinnet, its not if he says so, i don't necessarily LOVE Lebos opinions on the bible but his statements here are technically fact. You don't have to love it and you're free to practice any religion in any way you choose. But he IS correct, that is what the "canon gospel" bible has written in it
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, i won't downvote you because you were trying to be helpful, but it is my understanding that you are incorrect here. Despite that it would be great if you weren't
@Medic135, I downvoted him primarily because I don’t want his false statement to be top comment.
I have nothing against Christians, especially ones like you that use their faith to try to be better people, but I do have something against the spreading of ignorance, and the claim that the Bible doesn’t condemn homosexuality because it actually means to be forbidding pedophelia is just the spreading of willful ignorance.
@I Are Lebo, no no i don't think you condescend on us all or religion in general. We just vary in opinion on the bible at times but you're definitely factually correct here my pal
@Medic135, I was just saying that I appreciate your perspective even though we disagree on some of the base concepts.
@InsaneAnimeCleavage, yeah this is not true whatsoever
@I Are Lebo, the bible doesnt explicitly need to forbid or allow everything. You van still use other principles to determine right and wrong in areas it foesnt speak about.
In this case, anyone who believes it cant support pedophilia... why? Sex outside of marriage. Only adults can get married. Only straight people can get married. Also rape is a sin too. That's like commiting at least 4 sins.
So even if the bible doesnt say pedophilia is wrong directly, there are other core things it does that clearly make it wrong, so you can't blame the religion and its texts, you can only blame the person for not following the religion they claim to follow.
@phalcon , Genesis 19:8 “Behold, I have two daughters who have not known any man. Let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you please. Only do nothing to these men, for they have come under the shelter of my roof.”
Judges 19:24 “Behold, here are my virgin daughter and his concubine. Let me bring them out now. Violate them and do with them what seems good to you, but against this man do not do this outrageous thing.”
And most of all, Numbers 31:17-18 “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.
But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.”
The Bible does not set an age limit of marriage. The word pedophile (or any translation thereof) doesn’t appear within the Bible a single time. Sexual relations with children is not only never explicitly condemned, at a few points in the story it is not only endorsed by God, it is commanded by Him.
As is rape.
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 “If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.”
The Bible is not supportive of rape victims, and God orders rapists to marry their victims.
Also, Judges 19 is a long story all about the rape and murder of a young concubine and is too long to post here, but in which the raped woman receives no Justice and her rapists and killer all go unpunished.
@I Are Lebo, why are people liek you so intellectually dishonest?
Genesis 19:9 is historical. In context it's simply recording what, happend, it's not saying this is, ok.
Same with judges 19.
Like seriously that's just absolute dishonest on your part there.
So no it's not endorsed at all by God. People acting badly recording in scripture is not God endorsing things.
@phalcon , when God orders the Hebrews to slaughter the Samsonites but keep the virginal daughters as sex slaves, that’s not historical, and it absolutely is the endorsement of rape.
The dishonest one here is you.
There's a documentary coming out about how they replaced the word pedophile with homosexual in the Bible.
(Hits blunt) I dunno. Sounds kind of gay to me
Welp... I think I'm getting a pile of rocks and heading up to Canada... not to stone people, no no... to build the wall on the right side, these f@ckers are to dumb to read.
@That one lurker, arent you the guy who was justifying the capitol siege?
@Hoban Washburne, nope, I condemned their action.
@That one lurker, Pretty funny how you're making fun of people's ability to read when you used the wrong form of "to" fvcking idiot lmaoooo
@Rudolph Schmidt , there's a difference in missspelling a word and misinterpreting words.
But hey, you don't actually care for diction since you added a second space for no reason lmaoooo
@That one lurker, lmaooo youre so madd bc someone called out your stupidity. Mmmm that salt tastes good give me some more 🧂🧂🧂🧂🧂
@That one lurker, Pretty ironic how you misspelled "missspelling" too you idiot haha madddddd
@Rudolph Schmidt , this has honstly been a good laugh, it's neat to see nine year olds still on the app. You go and grow into a bwig stwang twoll. Maybe, if you're lucky, you'll make it in a cringe compilation some day.
@That one lurker, That's right little salt boy youre mad. Run away now you're giving me too much salt 🧂🧂🧂🧂🧂
@butternut squash, which religion is "Levicitus" from?
