Until such appears miraculously in all biblical texts, Same gender intimacy is as delicious and wholesome as Conch Chowder at Sunset in Key West while listening to Jimmy Buffet!

Thanks for the welcome. You know, the passage in Leviticus 18:22 does not say man shall not lie with man. It warns the Israelites not to indulge in the sexual rituals of the temple of Molech in which men engaged in anal sex with the male temple prostitutes. The very first part of that sentence says, "And with a zachar you shall not have sex with the male temple prostitutes." A zachar, by the way, was a dildo, a male penis made out of stone, clay, wood or ivory, and it was carried around as a sacred tool. From the word zachar, we get the word in Latin, sacr, which is the root for sacred.
Just something for you to think about. I hope you will read the entire book and spread the knowledge. We have to "liberate" the closed-minded.
