Why do you think your POV would be credible to me. And BTW, I don't actually live in San Francisco.

So then you are agreeing that they condemned homosexuality.
Stay on TOPIC, and stop trying to bring up verses that have nothing to do with the topic at hand

Homosexuality was nothing 'new' back when Moses was around.

Marriage was ALWAYS taught as a man/woman.

I have also looked at that article about 'PHILO'.

a 'Jewish' Philosopher out of how many?
There are thousands of Jewish/Christians that know what the interpretation means.

One more thing I saw on this Philo guy....he said that Paul 'coined' the word Arsenokoites from the OT. THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE as the OT was/is written in HEBREW. It even uses the word in comparison with the Leviticus teaching which is WRONG. The OT was not written in Greek.

It's funny how you ridicule the bible, and claim yourself to be a Christian.

Either you believe in it or you don't. Then pick/choose what you think is right for your lifestyle.

The problem I think I see is that some folks lean heavily in the direction of love and compassion with a little emphasis on what God's Word says and then you have those who lean the other direction. What I believe is right is to have balance: love and compassion with God's Holy Word guiding us.
