The old testament always dissaprove homosexuality but instead support pedophilia.

Christianity is a religion not a moral code.

@ skeptical so you don't support death penalty for adultety,sodomy,witchcraft,incest and fornication ?

@missmedic chriatianity also contain moral code which the language of lectivitus play an important role in formulating criminal law.

I always believe in the old testament

@stephannoi: of course I do! Don't forget working on the Sabbath and talking back to your parents. We shouldn't let anyone live who does either of those things either.

@Stephannoi Literally none of those things deserve the death penalty. While most of them are horrible, they aren't worthy of being punished by death. You probably live thousands of years back though, so what would I know? A true Christian shouldn't be taking wrongful justice into his own hands, and should be leaving it to his God: "19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord." (Romans 12:19) If Leviticus truly is your moral code, do you not wear garments of different fabrics together (Leviticus 19:19)? Are you not going to eat fat and instead only offer it to God (Leviticus 3:17)? Are you not going to let your hair become unkempt or are you not going to tear your clothes (Leviticus 10:6)? If you had a vineyard, and a few grapes have fallen, would you not pick them up (Leviticus 19:10)? Are you not going to eat fruit from a tree within four years of planting it (Leviticus 19:23)?

@ foxxhajti Adultery and sodomy are among the worst crime even more heinous than first degree murder. It's absolutely sinful and should be punish by death as it mention in the book of lectvitius , ( Lect 20:13) Mankind should not lyeth with a mandkind or womankind,it's an adomination,both of them surely should be put to death, ( Lect 10;13) adulterer should be put to death.

And why do you think we should apply that to our national law.

Religion+ state=theocracy and we've all seen how that has worked out (middle east)
