Leviticus Chapter 20
2 Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.
18 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.
24 But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people.
25 Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean.

Leviticus Chapter 20 Bible commentary...
Law against sacrificing children to Moloch, Of children that curse their parents. (1-9) Laws repeated, Holiness enjoined. (10-27)1-9 Are we shocked at the unnatural cruelty of the ancient idolaters in sacrificing their children? We may justly be so. But are there not very many parents, who, by bad teaching and wicked examples, and by the mysteries of iniquity which they show their children, devote them to the service of Satan, and forward their everlasting ruin, in a manner even more to be lamented? What an account must such parents render to God, and what a meeting will they have with their children at the day of judgment! On the other hand, let children remember that he who cursed father or mother was surely put to death. This law Christ confirmed. Laws which were made before are repeated, and penalties annexed to them. If men will not avoid evil practices, because the law has made these practices sin, and it is right that we go on that principle, surely they should avoid them when the law has made them death, from a principle of self-preservation. In the midst of these laws comes in a general charge, Sanctify yourselves, and be ye holy. It is the Lord that sanctifies, and his work will be done, though it be difficult. Yet his grace is so far from doing away our endeavours, that it strongly encourages them. Work out your salvation, for it is God that worketh in you.
10-27 These verses repeat what had been said before, but it was needful there should be line upon line. What praises we owe to God that he has taught the evil of sin, and the sure way of deliverance from it! May we have grace to adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things; may we have no fellowship with unfruitful works of darkness, but reprove them.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

Old Testament practiced 3000 years ago is outdated. It is all about "eye for an eye " and "tooth for a tooth ". It is about hate and revenge and thirsting for blood, not about love, sympathy and compassion for all. Who the hell are we mortals to comment on any manner of sin....who among us is bold enough to say he she has not committed any sin??? It would be worth your while if you spent more time reflecting on and asking forgiveness for your own innumerable sins!!!

The bibles says though shall not kill yes, but the bible talk about leviticus 20:9, 20:11, 20:12 20:13 the word of God says does people should be put to death and their blood will be upon their own head, that means if the kill does people is not sin. All that we are asking God is mercy and we need to repent from these acts if we are doing them.

I trust and believe the same God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I trust Him and I am taking on some of the characteristics of Jesus according to The Bible that He instructed individuals to write. Therefore, I can love the person that Practices homosexual lifestyle, I hate the sin! My God has addressed the issue and has taken a stance with an outcome for its violation. What happened in Sodom and Gormorah?
