Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay

I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:

Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.

I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.

The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’

Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.

Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them. 

I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts. 

Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.

I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.

Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “doulos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (doulos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.

Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.

Matthew 8:5-13

THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.

In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.

I had never heard the above story, and reading this post I didn’t understand why Jesus would think the guy was such a huge example of faith, so I googled it.

And I discovered something brilliant. I can’t stop laughing.

Here’s what happens: the Centurion goes to Jesus and says “My pais is really sick, please, save him”, and Jesus is like “sure, take me to your house and I’ll heal him”. The Centurion then replies “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word.” And that’s why Jesus was so amazed, because the guy believed he could heal without even seeing the sick person.

I had never heard the story before, but man, had I heard the Centurion’s response. I remember it vividly from when I was, like, 3 to 6 years old and had to go to church with my grandparents. It is one of the sentences people have to keep repeating during catholic mass. It was, in fact, the very first problem I ever had with the catholic church. I never believed in god or anything religious, but I liked the church’s beautiful windows and the choir. What made me start to hate going to church was how much people had to constantly humiliate themselves and blame themselves for everything. I do deeply respect religious believes, but I hate the abuse organized religion can commit against it’s members, and the frequency with which that quote was repeated was one of my first hints of that.

So I can’t help being amused by discovering where it came from. C’mon! I don’t know about other christian religions, but catholics are devoutly quoting a non-straight man in church every week. A non-straight man who Jesus held as an example in front of a crowd.

This is gold. This is a treasure that will probably be very useful during this year’s Christmas family reunion. Matthew 8:5-13. Gotta memorize that.

Land of the free home of the rich

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make the least, they pay the most.

…wait, what?




Yup.

What’s really sad is that the average cost of medical school in Australia is $9000/year. In the US, it’s $20,000-40,000 with some schools topping out at $75,000 a year. Nursing school in the US can cost $50,000-100,000 for four years and $50,000+ for a master’s degree. Our country is facing a huge crisis in primary care and all our universities care about is making money. Things need to change. Medicare and Medicaid barely reimburse for services and there are so many indigents, those with commercial insurance eat the cost.

What’s even worse is apperantly from popular opinion all of us from 20-35 are money hungry, lazy as fuck, useless wastes of space who are asking too much when we exclaim that we LEGIT can’t make it on our own. That we NEED roommates or financial aids or food stamps.
But we’re just lazy you guys.

Oh I know! Nothing pisses me off more than Baby Boomers saying “oh, those self absorbed Millenials, taking selfies and living in their parent’s basement. Like hello…. the cost of college has increased over 1000% in the past two decades. We no longer have high paying, low skilled jobs like working at the auto plant. Everything has been outsourced to other countries where they pay them 0.25$ a day. Our government has let this happen, providing tax breaks to huge companies. And they wonder why we are bitter.

I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society
