Leviticus 18:6-28, "No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the Lord.
7 Do not dishonor your father by having sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother; do not have relations with her.
8 Do not have sexual relations with your fathers wife; that would dishonor your father.
9 Do not have sexual relations with your sister, either your fathers daughter or your mothers daughter, whether she was born in the same home or elsewhere.
10 Do not have sexual relations with your sons daughter or your daughters daughter; that would dishonor you.
11 Do not have sexual relations with the daughter of your fathers wife, born to your father; she is your sister.
12 Do not have sexual relations with your fathers sister; she is your fathers close relative.
13 Do not have sexual relations with your mothers sister, because she is your mothers close relative.
14 Do not dishonor your fathers brother by approaching his wife to have sexual relations; she is your aunt.
15 Do not have sexual relations with your daughter-in-law. She is your sons wife; do not have relations with her.
16 Do not have sexual relations with your brothers wife; that would dishonor your brother.
17 Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter. Do not have sexual relations with either her sons daughter or her daughters daughter; they are her close relatives. That is wickedness.
18 Do not take your wifes sister as a rival wife and have sexual relations with her while your wife is living.
19 Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period.
20 Do not have sexual relations with your neighbors wife and defile yourself with her.
21 Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.
22 Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
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.
24 Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. 25 Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. 26 But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, 27 for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. 28 And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you."
These are things that pretty much accepted in society as wrong, except when it comes to homosexuality? Why is that? Better mainstream media and Hollywood press?
Either way, I have the right and the ability to teach my children these things are wrong, without the state trying to brainwash them with books like "So and So has two Dads", etc. When the state decides to do that, they have violated MY freedom under the First Amendment.
Is this a pick and choose? Most verses seem to be treated this way by its "believers"
