"If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination." (Leviticus 20:13). "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you." (Leviticus 18:22-24). Notice that the latter Bible verses lump in homosexuality with bestiality.
So because the Bible says that gay sex and bestiality are the same, then that is the reason to not be gay?
How about if I say that homosexuality and bestiality are *not* morally the same and that the Bible is wrong on this one? I'm sorry, but this is 2000 year old reasoning, and it shows I'm afraid.
I don't that the two being mentioned in the same chapter means anything, the Leviticus was written over a long timespan, not in chronological order. You can often find totally random laws written after each other.
BTW, now that I'm thinking about it, why not? How is either bestiality, or homosexuality morally worse than the other one?
Humans can understand and give consent, Show me how an animal can both understand what you are doing to it and give consent, and I will repeal that argument...
To be honest that is one reason out of dozens.
Animals aren't required to give consent for being butchered, and eaten by you, either. How is sex worse?
lol are you saying your okay with beastiality? I'd rather eat a cow then fuck it.
No, I wouldn't eat or fuck any animal, but I'm trying to make an analogy.
Some people who replied me basically seem to think that bestiality is bad just because it is considered disgusting. But what stops me from saying the same about homosexuality?
highwaystar 101- Video gaming is also unnatural, does that mean that it is morally wrong?
What you just did is an "appeal to nature" fallacy - that is wrong, first, because you assume that anything that doesn't happen in nature is undesirable, second because you use "nature" as synonymous with "normal", therefore you are also suggesting that it is bad just because it is weird.
Rath - As highwaystar already pointed out, animals are unable to give consent. Non-consensual sex between the same species is often the normal way of reproduction. I can't see how different genitals would automatically cause horribly worse pain than naturally. Well, I can see certain cases, but I don't want to think about it too hard, and anyways, it would be nitpicking, like saying that gay sex is bad because sometimes it can involve torturing.
