The Bible: Gay vs Pork

Christians love to point out that homosexuality is a sin. The bible says the same thing about eating pork. So when are christians going to speak out against pork like the do when it comes to homosexuality?

What does Bible say about eating pork?
In Leviticus 11:27, God forbids Moses and his followers to eat swine “because it parts the hoof but does not chew the cud.” Furthermore, the prohibition goes, “Of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch; they are unclean to you.” That message is later reinforced in Deuteronomy.

Leviticus 18:22-23, 30; 20:13
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. You shall not have sexual relations with any animal and defile yourself with it, nor shall any woman give herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it: it is perversion. So keep my charge not to commit any of these abominations that were done before you, and not to defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God. If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death; their blood is upon them.

That’s only for Jews. My preacher told me so. Pork ribs are delicious and Jesus knew they would be.

Bacon, good.

Queers, odd.

Old testament = old school.

It also says I can beat my wife, own slaves, etc.

I think homosexuality falls under the umbrella of sexual immorality and is therefore a sin.



I also think that picking a small set of sins that are “worse” than others demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of God, sin & the gospel. All fall short and need saving.


Gospel is that we all sin in one way or another and all need saving. Gay, straight, bi, tall, short, everybody.

I will admit there have been Christians who have handled the issue of homosexuality extremely poorly, but let's not pretend that people on the other side don't bring the issue up quite often just as a "gotcha" type question.

Whoa. This is a brand new, never before heard argument.

I wish theologians had thought of this. Thanks, hawkeye007, for unraveling this mystery.

Jesus affirms heterosexual marriage, and Paul condemns same-sex relations. These two facts about the New Testament cannot be debated.

Israelites. Correct.

Besides, Acts 10:9-15 just as an example.

OP is just flinging poo though.

You should have made this Gay vs Divorce. Divorce is very much a New Testament sin that is not allowed. If you divorce, you cannot remarry.
