Ruth, Naomi, David and Jonathan

I have just been reading about an interesting topic: the passages in the Bible that are used to condemn homosexuality.

There are two issues that are demonstrated here: the New Covenant between Jesus and his followers (Christianity) which overrides the Holy Code and therefore everything in the Old Testament, and the poor translations from the original Greek scriptures in the New Testament.

From a purely historical and academic point of view, it makes for interesting reading, if nothing else. And then there’s the small matter of Ruth and Naomi, and David and Jonathan.

P.S. I liked the comment that there was no Greek word for “homosexual”. My twisted mind loves that thought. It’s like my friend Toni says, “Fish don’t have a word for water”.
