Gwyneth Paltrow took to her Goop blog today and raised an issue sure to result in numerous responses on both sides:

Does the bible truly condemn homosexuality? This is what the actress wrote:

A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologizing for wishing death on gays from his facebook page. This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the bible.

This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgement and separation in our society. When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, "Two mommies? How lucky is she?!" What does it actually say in the bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?

Respond away, THG readers. But try to keep it respectful as you answer: Does the bible condemn homosexuality?

God Word is very clear on this...........If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed and abomination (something discusting, it is idolatry and a form of an idol. going on to say, they shall be put to death, their blood shall be upon them. The question then becomes, do you believe God's Word or not? The choice is yours but the outcome remains the same. God is the One that judges and the One that pronouns judgment. Death!!!!!!!

If you read the bible, you'd know.
"And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: They shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Leviticus 20:13 That being said, I am not religious, nor do I have any problem with homosexuality. But if the question is: Does the bible condemn homosexuality, the answer is clear. But that doesn't mean religious people, or even the church, follows the bible's words on the subject.

Im a Lesbian , i have been with my partner for almost 3 yrs , we are both christian . As we have drawn closer to god we realise we need to change our ways , we are both very much in love .we have decided to stop sleeping together if you know what i mean ! We will still kiss , cuddle and sleep in the same bed . Weve just removed the sexual desire from our lives. it will be hard , but you need to make sacrifices to live a life right by the lord . And together we stand .for those that judge homosexuals we are all just people like you . We are all sinners. No man is perfect except for jesus . No person should judge one another , that job should be left for god . And if you think you are better than the next person . Your just self ritious i

We should all be humble before a creator who made the word "judgment" so hard to spell right.

It's so sad how people that don't agree w/ a lifestyle choice get branded as ignorant bigots that spew hatred - when the same people who are branding them are being judgemental as well. I am a Christian & it makes me so sad when I am blasted for my religion. Gay people can be gay. It's their choice if they want to be gay, but don't blast me because I try to live my life by the Bible and don't agree with it. I am entitled to my own opinion just like gay people are.

Gwyneth Paltrow Quotes

I've learned more about myself being married than anything else. I hate to say, "We've got it worked out," because you never know what's going to happen, but we laugh, we're good friends, we like to do the same stuff.

Gwyneth Paltrow

It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple.
