Leviticus 20:13:

If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Nice try, Colbert.

Leviticus was written approximately 1400 years before Jesus’ birth.

Nice try, artemispotter.

Old Testament =/= New Testament. Seriously. Also, Leviticus also commands you to learn the Torah, which, if you’re getting Old and New confused, you clearly haven’t.

Not to mention the other ridiculous laws in Leviticus (and Deuteronomy, as well), including the following:

  • No mixing of different types of fabric
  • No having sex with a woman on her period
  • Curse your mother or father? You must be killed
  • Disabled people cannot worship God 
  • Stubborn children should be stoned.

So…. still want to argue how valid the OT is?

Also, in the Bible!=Jesus said it, anyway.  Even in the NT, there are a lot of people who aren’t Jesus giving their opinions.


Only if the words are in red (in many translations) does it mean that Jesus said it.

FWIW, the apostle Paul and I would not have been friends.  Mortal enemies is more like it.

Hey, guys, remember that one time when Jesus declared Levitican law irrelevant?

The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.

-Hebrews 7:18-19.

Having been Jewish for, you know, ever, I am endlessly amused at the Christian Right’s reliance on Leviticus. Even I, who didn’t understand the theological difference between Catholics and Protestants until I took a course on Christianity in college, knew that Jesus was totes anti-Leviticus.

Seriously, people…

Ugh thank you. Fellow Christian here. I’ve literally NEVER understood this logic. “hey guys let’s pick one arbitrary part of leviticus to harp on and ignore the fact that 99% of the new testament explicitly tells us the old covenants/laws no longer hold true”
