3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.
17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.
22Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Matthew Henry's Leviticus Chapter 18 Bible commentary...
Unlawful marriages and fleshly lusts.
- Here is a law against all conformity to the corrupt usages of the heathen. Also laws against incest, against brutal lusts, and barbarous idolatries; and the enforcement of these laws from the ruin of the Canaanites. God here gives moral precepts. Close and constant adherence to God's ordinances is the most effectual preservative from gross sin. The grace of God only will secure us; that grace is to be expected only in the use of the means of grace. Nor does He ever leave any to their hearts' lusts, till they have left him and his services.

I think this verse is very pertinent for today because the mass media and the entertainment industry is bombarding us with occult immagery from the Egyptian area.

The bottom line is this. We (the called out one's “The Ecclesia”; God people) should not hate one who "chooses" to lead a homosexual lifestyle. For that is "not" for us to do. God makes it very clear, that it's an "abomination" to Him. As for how to deal with a person in ones family on this matter. There are several other scripture the one can use to aid in “fruitful” conversation on the matter; Matthew 18:15, Romans 1:24-32, etc.

God and the Word of God change not.
Homosexuality is an abdomination, a sin.
Many false preachers will go to the lake of fire for supporting gay marriages.

Verse 22. Says it all. Man can do whatever he wants for political or other expediencies but in the sight of Yahweh it is wrong, Choose you this day who you will serve! Man or El? Amen!!!

Same sex marriages? Is it the Lord’s way or man’s way? Let us look at Sound Doctrine Leviticus 16:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” God has put his standard and regulation when it comes to marriage, he simply talks about husband/wife relationship and has been clear when it comes to it. Many say God loves everyone and Many people try to justify that to lie with a man as a woman is really no problem, and they will try to get behind them heaven and earth to be able to legally get married. And yes it’s so true that God loves everyone; that is the whole reason he sent his Son Jesus Christ into this world John 3:16. But he also expects us first and most importantly to Know him and his Son, so we can get eternal life, not just chance his standard and end-up in hell. John 17:3.

I'm not perfect nor do I claim to be but I ask how could a person who claims to be a follower of God, condone same sex marriages? God does not hate the sinner, but yes He does hate the sin. As Jesus hung on the cross, He asked his Father "Why have You forsaken me?" It was and still is because God wants nothing to do with sin and does not associate with sin. So tell me: how can a so called messenger of God perform same sex marriages, when the Bible states it's an abomination?

I know that I as a Christian have broken innumerable amounts of the laws stated throughout Leviticus, but that does not mean that I am wrong to agree with God's clear statement on homosexuality.
