Shellfish was a dietary restriction for the Jewish people. Read the Bible in context.

Anybody who has read the entire Bible (with an open mind, and not looking for a bunch of gotchas and loopholes) will have NO doubt as to what God expects of us. Just because Jesus didn't specifically talk about Homosexuality doesn't mean He approved of it. He came to preach to the Jews, and it wasn't an issue with them, so He didn't need to address it. Had He gone to the Greeks or Romans, He'd have probably said plenty. Jesus didn't talk about pedophilia or bestiality either... so do we say those are OK now?

It must be fought on the legal front (not condemned) because the homosexual agenda is not about fair treatment of homosexuals. It's agenda is to reach into the public schools and impose acceptance of this sin upon our children (just one example that has already been seen in the real world). If you want to practice homosexuality, fine but do not tell me that I and my children must accept it as an equally valid lifestyle when my religion tells me differently.

Did God explicitly say this or did Jesus explicitly say it? And it mentions drunkards too, but this country has tolerated alcohol for most of its history and very few actively protest against it. Is there a context to consider with this passage?

And even if you're correct (and I admit that's a possibility) what is the recourse? Why is it still logical to condemn homosexuality on a legal front? The bible is not the law of the land.

Homosexuality however is also condemned in the NT. 1 cor. 6:9-11--
1 Corinthians 6:9-11

New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)


9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. ~ Abraham Lincoln

America has forsaken her first love. She has finally, and fully, given herself over to a licentious Lothario with whom she has increasingly flirted since her youth. He is sin – and, notwithstanding full knowledge of who he is and what he intends, with him she has lain.

America has tasted the poisonous fruits of lust, pride, passion, and envy – sloth, frivolity, iniquity and entitlement. She has tasted of their sweet deception and found...
