Leviticus says that one can not cut their hair, shave their beard, harvest the corners of their fields. It also says that one can stone their children to death for talking back to them. But whatevs, we’ll just focus on that one about gay people. 

The one about lying with another man, which was taken out of context.

I just want to point out that that cutting hair thing was also taken out of context. It’s actually talking about what a Nazir has to do. Shaving the beard is a different thing. That’s the result of the actual rule: no shaving the corners of your face. There is a little bit of debate about this one; you should check it out. Harvesting the corners of the field… That sounds like it’s the one where you leave grain for poor people. Like, you don’t harvest it so people can just take it. Not sure. Also, the talking back thing isn’t even true. That one’s just a lie. I do agree that gay marriage should be a thing, but please don’t take things out of context or make shit up. Use truth to defeat lies.
