After gay night club shooting should we ban this passage in bible, Jew torah and Koran?
Leviticus 20:13-15 "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them. If a man takes a woman and her mother also, it is depravity; he and they shall be burned with fire, that there may be no depravity among you. If a man lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you shall kill the animal." Christianity derive from Judiasm and Islam derive from Christianity. If u think the gay night club shooting is bad, Russia and Iran has passed law to kill gays, as a result of Leviticus 20:13-15
The Koran has more than one passage calling for death of homosexuals, many Hadiths doing so.
And banning the passage in the Bible is irrelevant - Christians at most get screamed at for saying I don't want to make something for your homosexual wedding - while Muslims are killing homosexuals around the world. Iran and Saudi Arabia execute them after criminal trials, ISIS throws them off roofs after someone is outed. And CAIR, the Counsel of American Islamic Relations, says NOTHING about this.
The threat to homosexuals is Islam, since half a dozen Muslim nations execute homosexuals, while around 30 of them simply jail homosexuals. More telling, the majority of Muslims in Western nations want to make homosexuality illegal.
Lumping Christians in with Muslims will be the death of liberal secular society, when being so afraid Christians will implement a Taliban / ISIS like state leads to monitoring of them while ignoring and excusing Muslims who are setting up Shariah patrols in France and England, demanding Shariah law accommodations in Minnesota, killing homosexuals in the West.
No, of course the verse should not be banned.
Why? Because Scripture must be used to interpret Scripture, or the whole must interpret the part. This applies to the entire Bible so it becomes reckless to uplift/denounce one component of it to the detriment of everything else.
Because when when do allow Scripture to interpret Scripture, what do we see in John 8? A guilty woman who also committed a crime that the Book of Leviticus said was worthy of death. Yet, Jesus showed the woman compassion and told her to "Go and sin no more" (John 8:11) after stopping other men from harming her. Because as I Corinthians 10:23 says, some things may in fact be lawful but they aren't worth doing because they don't benefit or edify others.

Listen, I'm more than willing to accept the fact that religion plays a large part in peoples lives, I get it, but you people (and Christians, I'm looking at you here) have got to come at me with something better than cliche biblical quotes. The bible is the biggest, most perverse, most destructive...

Whenever an Islamic terrorist event occurs, our Western politicos rally around to reasure us that Islam is a peaceful religion. Is this accurate?I'm sure any Al Quaeda member will be able to justify their actions by quoting a few passages of the quran. If as Westerners we were to read the same...

Personally that is? Since NC voters have made it clear marriage is between a man and a woman all I hear about is god made a man and a woman, It's a sin, and so on. Even if that were all true how does it have anything to do with you? Why do you care who someone else wants to marry? I don't...

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...

I heard this on the radio and shook my head. Bring your Bible to school and do what? Show everyone that you can't distinguish fact from fiction? Here's a novel idea, how about bring your textbook instead and leave the Jewish fairy tale book at home where it belongs. Okay, so Christians want to...
