What's with the gay rights anyway? When the Bible was written, slavery was still rampant, so human rights were on a very low level, let alone gay rights, it's not like they were discussed in detail.
true, and the God of the OT didn't make things better for humans, he actually commanded despicable laws that only added to the misery of people at that time (for instance the original invention of cutting portions of the genital organs, all rights reserved to God for that one) rather than teaching them with his infinite wisdom, power and knowledge how to behave like proper people, something close to how the civilized, secular world - that got rid of religious commandments - lives now
unless of course; God was a human invention back at a time when they didn't know any better, some men tried to control others (especially women) and didn't have any higher wisdom or knowledge to help them become better human beings, unless you think followers of the OT were better than our secular societies now, in which case Aloimeh would agree with you
The fact gay sex was mentioned in OT, doesn't necessarily mean anything - as I've already pointed out, the woman had to die according to the OT, yet not only Jesus didn't stone her, he saved her (btw, there goes misogynistic part out of the window).
again, I'm not talking about what Jesus did, I'm talking about what the God of the OT and its prophets commanded and applied on their society, Jesus (according to Christian theology) is supposed to be one and the same in essence, so all the atrocities of the OT have been condoned by Jesus during a significant part of human history
you only have to answer a simple and direct question, do you believe the God of the OT did the right thing by condemning homosexuals and the homosexual act or not?
Anyway, not sure what's the point of Science vs God argument, when it doesn't say anything. Science doesn't deal with god, can't prove nor disprove its existence (it's not even trying to), simply doesn't apply.
science shows us that we don't need
God to understand our world, things we once ascribed to God now have very plausible and reasonable natural and scientific explanations, you don't need to keep that childish blind faith in despicable, ancient moral values that are no longer relevant to our life, especially when they cause much misery in our world once people take them too seriously
