Skip to comments.[Catholic Caucus] Church Tax Church Publishes Homosex “Bible"
Posted on 08/27/2023 7:04:01 PM PDT by ebb tide
The self-declared homosexual Meinrad Furrer, 58 who runs Lucerne's St Peter's Chapel, Switzerland, and gets paid from church tax, is writing a homosex bible, ZentralPlus.ch writes (August 12).
The church tax bosses of the canton of Lucerne are behind the project. Basel Diocese does not stand in its way.
Furrer insinuates that Joseph, the son of Jacob, was "homosexual" because, in Gen 37:3, Jacob made him a colourful skirt (Furrer: "princess's dress").
He admits that there are "certain texts" in the Bible that "could be read" in a "queer-hostile" way, such as Lev 18:22 and 20:13: Thou shalt not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination.
He wants to “put in context" [=remove] these truths by twisting the Bible. This way, homosexuals should receive "a positive approach to the realities of their lives" [=sinfulness].
His homosex pamphlet was presented at a stand of the "churches" at a homosex march on 26 August.
There are gray areas in scripture where different translations and interpretations of ancient words might make spin possible. Homosexuality isn’t one of those. It’s quite clear that God said “NO!” This guy spinning otherwise doesn’t change that.
That seems cruel to some people only because of the cleverly planted myth of the gay gene - turns out nobody is “born that way”. It’s a lifestyle choice. As is the choice to live as the opposite sex.
Furrer should read the last chapter in the Bible, which warns those who would “revise” God’s word to suit their own purposes.
It’s in the BOOK. That’s the way it will be. Yes. No. Never maybe.
