Ron Cantor: Dear Rabbi, please read the very next verse:
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.
and then in verse 29 he refers to all the prohibitions as "destestable" or "abominitions"... same word that you interpret as "deceitful"
So, based on your interpretation, it is fine to have sex wtih an aminal as long as you are not married.
But in mordern Hebrew the word is clearly not decitful but destestable or an abomnination. Here is a sentnece that the dictiionary gives.
התעללות בילדים היא מעשה תועבה ...
Child ause is a DESTABLE act ...
If God is God and I beleive He is; if He is the author of the Hebrew scriptures and created mankind, then it is clear from Torah that our first command it so replinish the earth. You cannot replenish the earth or procreate in same sex unions. There is not hint of encoueagement of same sex unions in ancient Israel. We do not see Moses saying, "It is fine to have sexual relations with members of your gender provided that you are monagamous." Not even a hint!
But we live in a broken world becuase of the sin of Adam and Eve. For people with same sex attracations, my heart goes out to them. But it is a fearful thing to change the word of God.
Benny Attar: There would be no need for a law against bestiality if people weren't doing it. I find it incomprehensible that people like you are more accepting of adultery, which is prohibited in the ten commandments, than of homosexuality.
Ron Cantor: Benny Attar "more accepting of adutlery"? Nope...just as bad. In fact, Jesus said if you look at a woman and lust, you are guilty of adultery. He was not acccepting and neither am I. By the way, it is the author excusing adultery, as casual homosexual relationships are adulterous. But here is what you can't deny--and I was addressing the torah-beleiving rabbi--if you beleive in the God of the bible then there is no way to find a place for homosexual relationships.
