Why does the Bible instruct us that gays shall be put to death? Why did they see being gay as such a bad thing, back in the Bronze age?

    The people in the bible had to have as much straight sex for the purposes of procreation as possible in order to repopulate the planet after 'god' wiped out all but 8 of them...

    Just about every civilisation neighbouring ancient Palestine saw things differently, though;  Greeks on one side, the Persian continuum on the other, the Anatolians to the north; none of these saw anything wrong or perverted about gay men, which put the Hebrews in a minority position. Perfectly normal to all the neighbours!

    Odd that the Bible doesn't mention anything about sex with sheep.

    Being gay is a perversion.  God never made men anatomically to go with another man because they have to penetrate the anus which can be torn and cause pain, depression and even in some cases death.

    Men are anatomically made to penetrate women who are also made anatomically to receive.  That's obvious to every adult.

    Therefore homosexuality is not natural.  It's a perversion.

      @red devil face:  I was referring to the vagina having been made anatomically to receive the sperm idiot.  I guess you - being just a kid still, wouldn't have a clue what the difference is. You shouldn't making love outside of marriage anyway. Marriage is a holy Covenant between husband and wife

    Village elders were noticing that when men go off to the city for long periods and come back to their wives in the village , the elders (whose daughters were the wives of the wayward men) noticed their daughters falling ill with STDs. In order to protect their daughters whom they loved dearly they implemented the Laws of Moses, known even prior to Moses, and condemned wayward men to banishment, and then if they did not stay away , death. The punishments were for any kind of fornication, whether with prostitutes, male or female, there was no bias. The system was to protect communities from STD. Thankfully we dont need such harsh rules these days as we have anti-biotics and condoms.

    That was specifically Gods command to the ancient Hebrews, Why? God judges such acts as "abomination" - a perversion of his gift of sex he made and gave to husbands and wives. There is no value or purpose in gay sex acts. It is an unnatural and unhealthy act of the flesh which acts God condemns. 

    Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

      The Hebrews that left Egypt were to be a "perfect" example to the world of a godly people. ALL sin was to be removed from the camp.

    The Bible says a lot of people should be put to death for all sorts of things. Civilised countries know the Bible is wrong on this just as it is wrong on so many other things which is why no civilised country has the death penalty for any offence.

    The bible doesn't say gays should be put to death it says gays are an abomination. The answer it says this is because the bible was written by men, not god. The Bible is only as good as the knowledge was back then and that's pretty slim pickings. The Bible was wrong about the shape of the earth so most western Christians accept that the verse about gays being an abomination should also be taken with a huge pinch of salt.
