Quote:it may mean homosexuality but it is not at all clear.
Other parts of it are clearer but not what the words that mean homosexuality are saying. It is more of a PR spin to take it as certainty, like those translations did.
This is hardly satisfying for Christians who would be right to assume they were misled by the church, and that God allowed for believers to unjustly believe (for 2,000 years) through the church and translated Bibles that they were required to hold views against homosexuals.
But that's not what I'm arguing. I'm merely arguing that the Bible, in English, is pretty clear on its stance regarding homosexuality, and to force a Christian school to employ gay teachers violates the 1st amendment. And to attack Pence's wife for being a devout follower of the world's largest religion is a disgusting tactic employed by the Left. It is this type of rhetoric that eventually leads to a constitutional right taken away, which almost happened here:
"At the same time the religious and philosophical objections to gay marriage are protected views and in some instances protected forms of expression," Kennedy wrote, adding that the "neutral consideration to which Phillips was entitled was compromised here."
"The commission's hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment's guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion," Kennedy said, adding to say that the case was narrow.
