Old Testament: Homosexuality


  1. "And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him."
    What did Ham do? Did he just look at his naked father or was there something more to it than that? Some commentators have suggested that Ham committed homosexual rape on his drunken father, and that this was why Ham's descendants were eternally punished with slavery. 9:24

  2. This verse doesn't say what the Sodomites did to make them such exceedingly great sinners, though most bible believers equate "Sodomite" with homosexual. (But see Ezekiel 16:49, which claims the sins of Sodom were pride, gluttony, sloth, greed, and failure to help the poor.) 13:13

  3. The two angels that visit Lot wash their feet, eat, and are sexually irresistible to Sodomites. 19:1-5

  4. God kills everyone in Sodom and Gomorrah. 19:4-5, 24-25

  5. What did Sarah see? 21:9



  6. Homosexual acts are an abomination to God. 18:22

  7. If a man has sex with another man, kill them both. 20:13



  8. Women are not to wear men's clothing -- it's an "abomination unto the Lord." 22:5

  9. God says not be bring any whore, sodomite, or dog into the house of the Lord. For "these things are an abomination to the Lord." Sodomites and dogs are biblical names for homosexuals. 23:17-18

    1 Samuel

  11. "The soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul ... And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments ... and his girdle." 18:1-4

  12. "Jonathan ... delighted much in David." 19:2

  13. Saul is angered by his son's homosexual affair with David and says, "do not I know that thou has chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion of thy mother's nakedness?" 20:30

  14. Saul is a good example for Christian parents that discover that they have a homosexual child: try to kill the child and his or her lover. 20:31-33

  15. David and Jonathan "kissed one another, and wept with one another" when they parted for the last time. 20:41

    2 Samuel

  16. David loved Jonathan more than women. (And he loved a lot of women a lot!) 1:26

    1 Kings

  17. "There were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations...."
    God shows his homophobia by calling gay people "sodomites" and their sexual relations "abominations." 14:24

  18. Asa "did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD" by expelling homosexuals (or "sodomites", as the good book calls them). 15:12

  19. Jehoshaphat "did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord" and "took" the homosexuals (sodomites) "out of the land," or as the RSV says, "he exterminated" them. 22:43, 46

    2 Kings

  20. Josiah, with God's approval, broke down the houses of the sodomites. 23:7

    Song of Solomon


  21. "They declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul!"
    The biblical god just doesn't seem to care much for homosexuals. And he gets especially upset when "they hide it not." 3:9





  22. "Neither shall he regard ... the desire of women."
    The antichrist is gay!
    (Or so says Rev. Dwight McKissic of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Texas, citing this verse as proof.) 11:37



  23. They "have given a boy for a harlot." 3:3
