1 Corinthians 6:9 malakos - effeminate - mä-lä-ko's
1) of a boy kept for homosexual relations with a man
2) of a male who submits his body to unnatural lewdness
3) of a male prostitute

That is the CORRECT interpretation for the greek word malakos

I can go on....but I'm sure you get the point
Homosexuality is a sin

Where is your "correct" interpretation of the word from - is it a current meaning? Words change over time and words that were used 2000 years are liable to change and have cultural bias attached to them.

Soon we will legalize child molesters.
In some countries they allow this...and the US will soon be there with the way we're going
Is this a reply to me?

Meerkat, are you gay? Have you ever had SGA? (same gender attraction)

The brains of gay men and women look like those found in heterosexual people of the opposite sex, research suggests.
The Swedish study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, compared the size of the brain's halves in 90 adults.
Gay men and heterosexual women had halves of a similar size, while the right side was bigger in lesbian women and heterosexual men.
A UK scientist said this was evidence sexual orientation was set in the womb.

BBC NEWS | Health | Scans see 'gay brain differences'

This study has been proven false as the researchers did not know which cadavers were homosexual, and which were heterosexual. This theory is only that, a theory which has not been proven.

And, brains may be formed in the womb but as babies, toddlers, elementary and so on we're always developing and changing as we learn, thus our brain changes.

The New Testament was written in greek, and I gave you the greek interpretation.

I doubt it was taken out of context as it was written to the Romans where it was rampant with homosexuality and child molestation.

Cadavers?...This study was not done on cadavers, which you would know had you read the research...Un-freaking believable how you people twist the truth so that it fits with what is in your ancient book.

Differences both in the brain activity and anatomy were observed in a study involving 90 men and women, including homosexuals and heterosexuals of both genders.
The researchers monitored neural activity in the brain by charting blood flow.
The scans were carried out when the volunteers were resting and exposed to no external stimuli.

Did you read the link provided...?

They did not use cadavers, they used living humans...

"A group of 90 healthy gay and heterosexual adults, men and women, were scanned by the Karolinska Institute scientists to measure the volume of both sides, or hemispheres, of their brain.
When these results were collected, it was found that lesbians and heterosexual men shared a particular "asymmetry" in their hemisphere size, while heterosexual women and gay men had no difference between the size of the different halves of their brain.
In other words, structurally, at least, the brains of gay men were more like heterosexual women, and gay women more like heterosexual men"
