What to Say When You Hear the Bible Opposes Being Gay


3 of 5

The Bible & Being Gay-Do Not Lie With a Man as One Lies With a Woman

Another common passage that folks cite is Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."

According to the Guide to Christian Teens, "While many Christian denominations and scholars believe these scriptures clearly condemn homosexuality, others believe that the Greek terms used were meant to describe the homosexual behavior present at Pagan temples."

It is also worth noting that nowhere in the Bible are lesbians ever mentioned! So there is absolutely no biblical justification against women having sex with women.
