    Puddleglum, do you wear any gold jewelry? Just curious.

    Mmm, no he didn't. The Pharisees asked a specific question about men divorcing their wives to find contradiction in the law of Moses and Jesus answered it. Specifically talking about one thing, doesn't exclude other things.

    What do you suppose he meant about the translated "eunuchs born that way?"

    No. Why do you ask?

    I think this is not really worth a debate, because Puddleglum believes his or her truth is TRUTH. You can't argue with someone who can't see that they might be wrong.

    You are aware that the Bible wasn't written by Jesus. It was written by oodles of other people and then stories were picked and chosen and assembled by a bunch of other people.

    The meaning is anything but clear.

    I just realized that this is in the Book forum LOL

    I think debating religion is pointless. No one's mind is ever changed and both sides think they are right.
    And I really couldn't care less what puddlegum thinks about gay people.
