For the sake of clarity: it's implied that the law is addressed to men, so the chapter is not saying that women who have sex with men should be put to death.

I've got myself tied up a little with the complexities of dealing with gender inclusivity.

As always, please read the chapter for yourself if anything seems unclear!


Love how you offer no "clarity" on the fact that the Bible tells you to execute gays, adulterers, and naughty children among other things. You people are psychos...


Another reminder of His promise....
V 24 But I said to you, ‘You will possess their land; I will give it to you as an inheritance, a land flowing with milk and honey.’ I am the Lord your God, who has set you apart from the nations.
