Its not submitted for review . I don't need or ask for anyone's approval. There's nothing wrong with being gay. Its normal, fine, perfectly natural. Is it a choice? If it were, I'd choose it. I enjoy it. I'm pretty tolerant of straight people. I don't like seeing it, but what ya gonna do?"

Judaism: Homophobia |

Judaism: Homophobia | | Christian Homophobia | Scoop.it
Gerrit Visser's insight:

According to the Jewish Torah, homosexual men are to be killed and male homosexuality is likened to child sacrifice and bestiality.  The Talmud further likens male homosexuality to bestiality and claims that Jews in general are suspected of neither (this is repeated in the Sulchan Aruch).   As for Lesbianism, the Talmud states that women who have sex with other women are not fit to marry a priest and some Rabbis do not allow their daughters to sleep together to avoid such a situation.  There is little doubt that today’s calls to have homosexuals killed or the all to often likening of homosexuality to bestiality  comes from the influence of Jewish scripture.
