Shabbat Shalom, motherfucker: It's funny that god says "Don't tolerate sodomy, meaning any non-procreative sexual activity, because that turns your society into Sodom and eventually leads to human sacrifice" But the encyclopedia says "The Bible does not oppose homosexuality" All while the "Christian society" of the Western World is now literally Sodom, where vice is advertised, celebrated, paraded in the streets and people laugh in the face of morality when it is not spat upon or condemned outright. Even the Pope argues in favor of apostasy so that we might be more kind, loving, and respectful to the wonderful people who revel in the traditional practices of the inhabitants of Sodom It makes you wonder who writes the encyclopedia that attempts to discredit the Bible and defend the rituals Canaanites. It makes you wonder who it is runs the media and the businesses that condemn morality as prescribed by God and militantly defend the ritual practices of the people of Sodom Bible book Bible portal Leviticus 18 and 20 [edit ] V.T.E Main article: Leviticus 18 See also: Abomination (Bible) Chapters 18 and 20 of Leviticus form part of the Holiness code and list prohibited forms of intercourse, including the following verses: "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman, it is an abomination." Chapter 18 verse 221 "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination, they shall surely be put to death, their blood is upon them." Chapter 20 verse 132 These two verses have historically been interpreted by Jews and Christians as clear overall prohibitions against homosexual acts in general. More recent interpretations focus more on its context as part of the Holiness Code, a code of purity meant to distinguish the behavior of Israelites from the polytheistic Canaanites.3 One of those interpretations is from Janet Edmonds, which says: "To interpret these passages of Leviticus, it's important to know that this book of the Bible focuses on ritual purity for the Israelites, and setting guidelines for the Israelites to distinguish themselves from their pagan neighbors, the Egyptians and Canaanites, who lived in the lands before they were settled by the Jews. This is shown in Leviticus Chapters 18 and 20 by three specific scripture passages (Leviticus 18:2-3, 18:24 and 20:23) that state that the Israelites should never do what the Egyptians and Canaanites did." (4] Other interpreters state that God was commanding the Israelites to not to imitate anal sex between men practiced at the temples of Molech. 56 Daniel A. Helminiak, a Christian author and theologian says "the anti-gay 'unnatural' hullabaloo rests on a mistranslation." and that "nowhere does the Bible actually oppose homosexuality"] Rabbinical commentary [edit] The 12th-century Rashi, commenting on the Book of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 7:31 ) stated: Tophet is Moloch, which was made of brass; and they heated him from his lower parts, and his hands being stretched out, and made hot, they put the child between his hands, and it was burnt; when it vehemently cried out; but the priests beat a drum, that the father might not hear the voice of his son, and his heart might not be moved A rabbinical tradition attributed to the Yalkout of Rabbi Simeon,1 says that the idol was hollow and was divided into seven compartments, in one of which they put flour, in the second turtle-doves, in the third a ewe, in the fourth a ram, in the fifth a calf, in the sixth an ox, and in the seventh a child, which were all burned together by heating the statue inside. Modern interpretations [edit ] Scholars of the 17th century received from medieval rabbinical tradition the notion that the various gods named mlk "king" in the Hebrew Bible are closely related, if not identical [12 Early modern scholarship tended to accept the biblical and Greco-Roman accounts of child sacrifice at face value, although there were early suggestions that the biblical accoun might refer to a symbolic practice, among them an essay by John Selden of 1617 with the suggestion that the phrase h'byr b'sh Imlk "making to pass over the fire to Molek" might have entailed a februation (purification ritual) rather than human sacrifice.13 Valentin Greissing in 1678 suggested that the vocalisation Molek was modelled after Dn holem "dreamer, prophet" to distinguish it from melek "king", 141 presaging the much mo influential suggestion by Abraham Geiger (1857) that the vocalisation is a dysphemism modelled after nya boshet "shame". John Spenser wrote a seminal study on Molek, Lex transitum per ignem, in honorem Molechi prohibens in 1686, initiating the influential interpretation of Molek as a solar deity. Greco-Roman authors describe the Carthaginian practice of child sacrifice as dedicated to Baal Hammon or, in interpretatio graeca, to Cronus. The explicit identification of this Punic deity with the biblical Moloch is modern, suggesting a continuity of the practice of child sacrifice from Iron Age, or possibly Late Bronze Age Canaan to 2nd-century BC Carthage. Carthaginian child sacrifice in the context of biblical Moloch is studied, still based on the authority of ancient authors rather than archaeology, by Friedrich Münter in D Religion der Karthager (1816) and by Franz Karl Movers in Die Phönizier (1841). Both Münter and Movers concluded that Molek was identical with Baal and to be categorized as fire god In 1841, both Georg Friedrich Daumer and Friedrich Wilhelm Ghillany published influential works on the topic.15] These authors came to the conclusion that the biblical text reflects an original identity of Molek and Yahweh, and that the cult of Yahweh grew out of that of Molek, by the abolishing of human sacrifice. The authors find numerous instance of vestigial references to human sacrifice, most notably the law that all firstborns must be "consecrated" or "given" to Yahweh (Book of Exodus 13:2, 22:28) Abraham Geiger (1857) argued that the vocalisation molek was a secondary "dysphemic" correction due to the redactors of the Masoretic text, and argued that there were a further 25 or so instances that should be taken to refer to molek which had been missed by the correctors (and remain vocalised melek in the received text). Of these proposed instances, Isaiah 30:33 has become commonly accepted, while the others have at best found partial support.51 The hypothesis of Daumer and Ghillany of the original identity of Yahweh and Molek was controversially discussed by widely accepted in mid-19th century scholarship. It was influentially rejected by Wolf Wilhelm Friedrich von Baudissin in his dissertation Jahve et Moloch: sive de ratione inter deum Israelitarum et Molochum intercedente (Leipzig, 1874)I16Baudissin argued that the theonym MIk was of genuinely Phoenician (and neither Hebrew nor Asyrian) origin, reflected in Melqart of Tyre and the later reports of child sacrifice in the Tyrian colony of Carthage, and that it was only the import of the cult of the Tyrian Baal (i.e. Melqart) under king Ahab (r. ca. 885-850 BC) that gave rise to his worship among the Israelites (and the corresponding condemnation of the practice by the Yahwist faction represented in the Hebrew Bible) In the early 20th century, scholarly opinion on the topic begins to be informed by the results of archaeological excavations in the Near East, notably those by R. A. S. Macalister a Gezer during 1902-1909. Macalister reported evidence of child sacrifice in Late Bronze Age Canaan. Consensus shifted towards the assumption of widespread child sacrifice in Canaan, although there were dissenting opinions.17 French-led excavations at Carthage began in 1921, and from 1923 reported finds of a large quantity of urns containing a mixture of animal and children's bones. René Dussaud identified a 4th-century BC stela found in Carthage as depicting a child sacrifice[18] A temple at Amman (1400-1250 BC) excavated and reported upon by J.B. Hennessy in 1966, shows the possibility of bestial and human sacrifice by fire.19] While evidence of child sacrifice in Canaan was the object of academic disagreement, with some scholars arguing that merely children's cemeteries had been unearthed, in Carthage, the mixture of children's with animal bones as well as associated epigraphic evidence involving mention of mlk led to a consensus that, at least in Carthage, child sacrifice was indeed common practice The term mlk in Punic epigraphy was given a re-interpretation by Otto Eissfeldt in 1935.201 Eissfeldt's suggestion was that molk was not to be taken as a theonym at all but as a term for a type of fire sacrifice. For the Hebrew Bible, he argued that seven out of the eight instances of Masoretic Molek (excising 1 Kings 11:7 as an error for Milkom) should al be regarded as the technical term for child sacrifice rather than as the name of a god, and that *lěmolek "as a molk-sacrifice" had been reinterpreted as the name of a Canaanite idol following the Deuteronomic reform under Josiah (r. 640-609 BC). According to Eissfeldt, this 7th-century reform abolished the child sacrifice that had hitherto been an acceptable part of the cult of Yahweh.6 Paul G. Mosca's Child Sacrifice in Canaanite and Israelite Religion: A Study in Mulk and Molech (1975) similarly argued in support of the theory that child sacrifice (molk) to Yahweh was practiced until the Deuteronomic reform of the 7th century BC. Moshe Weinfield (1972)21] once again revived the "februarist" position, suggesting that the practice of "passing through fire" prohibited not refer the Israelites in Leviticus to actual child sacrifice but to a symbolic rite in which infants were passed across a flame. Smith (1975) responded to this proposal by arguing that the Hebrew phrase implies a translation of "to burn" rather than "to pass between flame"22] John Day (1989) argued for the existence of a god named Molek based on Ugaritic evidence.123] Shabbat Shalom, motherfucker
