Transcript LESBIAN RIGHTS As most of you are aware by now, the drive to get enough signatures on a petition to call for a referendum on the vote by the Houston City Council on adding "sexual orientation" to the affirmative action plan of the city has been successful. The churches with their- supposedly "Christian" attitudes passed out petitions at their services and then encouraged their members to go out and get signatures. The petitions carried some of the greatest distortions I have ever read. (I believe that is considered lying. In the Christian religion 1 was raised up in, lying was a sin. However, I guess now it's ok to lie if your doing it in the name of God.) I find it difficult to believe that the same religions that have taught love, concern and caring can now foster such emotions as hate arid death as Christian beliefs. Yes, this issue evokes strong emotion in me also, but ! think my anger comes from the ignorance of people who are not thinking for themselves, but are being led by charlatans. For those of you who may find yourself in a situation among these so-called Christians may 1 inform you of the following; Leviticus is trie book of the Bible that supposedly knowledgeable people like to quote as condemning homosexuality. "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (Leviticus 18:22) "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, (Leviticus 20:13) Taken out of context, tnese passages seem to present homosexuality as an extremely serious sin. These passages are located in the part of Leviticus known as the "Holiness Code," which has its origin in the sixth century 3.C. The purpose of the 600 or more rules that Leviticus codified was to define a unique lifestyle for the Jewish people that would clearly separate them and protect them from the ever-present threat of being overrun or influenced by their' "pagan" neighbors. The list of prohibitions covers everything from sex to food to the method of worship. The code also forbade the eating of shellfish, crosn-brceding cattle, wearing two kinds of fabrics, planting two types of seed in the same field, etc. 1 encourage you to read you Bible*and don't be led by the misinterpretations of others.
