I get what you are saying about "more info" but really as a starting point, you wouldn't want to overwhelm a child with 200 pages on 30 different religions. The detail can come later for us. But thank you for the recommendation
- punishing a woman - to marry her rapist is encouraging a man to treat her nicely?
You defended that passage without watching the doco - that makes me sad.
In the doco they talk about the 'not to lie with a man' passage - 'In context' of a time where they were trying to increase their population - 'spilling seed' or a man being with a man would've been a 'waste'.
That it wouldn't have helped their cause.
It had nothing to do with an internal 'sexuality'...which is the issue we are well aware of today.
And that the term 'unnatural' simply meant - 'not the norm in our society' as homosexual behaviour had been witnessed as 'normal/natural' in Greek society.
It seriously is ALL about interpretation.
..and even though the people in the doco believe in diety I personally think does not exist -- I much prefer their 'interpretation' of ancient text.
[even if one of the Mothers had to lose her daughter to suicide to realise that she was wrong ]
BTW - LGBT people are not 'practicing' these sins, they are living a life
BRB to edit and add
Mark 7 also says its attitude or thoughts that are sinful and does not mention homosexuality.
20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder,22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”
...putting this whole argument back in terms of the OP --- who wouldn't WANT their young children 'educated' in these passages - ( passages grown people who study and practise can't even agree on) ..to form their basic opinions on issues that affect our socity TODAY!?
They are sooooo straight forward, not confusing at all and obviously demonstrate acceptance, tolerance and equality.
And all the points you metioned about homosexuality from the video fiveinabed, i disagree and said i wasnt interested. Its just people trying to lax Gods standards, and ignoring the rest of the scriptures which condemn it, its not only homosexuality where this is happening tho is it? The bible said this would be the case. I could argue this till im blue in the face and pull out scripture after scripture but im wasting my time if the readers have no regard for the bible or Gods laws (not saying all do)
Thank you for your time and Enjoy the rest of your day ladies

what 'version' of the Bible do you follow shanboc?
The doco I am talking about doesn't attack Christianity at all.
I mentioned it because a poster said it would be beneficial to use the bible to educate chidlren on modern issues.
Enjoy your day too!
..I'm baking cookies with my little ones.
Just to make it clear, i dont have any hatred towards a gay person. I just dont approve of their lifestyle, and im sure there are many who wouldnt approve of mine Its God who i believe will judge, not me
And i would never vote for or against Gay marriage for those who raised the issue of Gay marriage and using scripture to argue against it.
I Dont vote as i dont believe politics and religion should mix. Jesus himself remained neutral in the politics of his day.
Ok i really need to go, have a little girl who needs my attention and have said all i need to say.
