In Life and News: Ah, Leviticus, What Do You Mean?

In Life and News: Ah, Leviticus, What Do You Mean?: “Leviticus 18:22 seems to be the key verse that is used to condemn gays and lesbians to the eternal fiery pits of hell by anyone who opposes homosexuality. It still amazes me that this verse is different depending on which translation is used. The King James Version of this verse states, “Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is an abomination.”

At face value it would seem that only men can not engage in homosexual activity. Then we have the New International Version: “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.” Again, it’s a ‘no-no’ for you men out there! There are many different translations, but I present to you the New Living Translation: “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.”
