Ok, I see many people say that homosexuality is condemned by the Qu'ran (I hope I spelled that right). What verses are you referring to? Do you read a translated version or the original?

So despite the fact that the word for male on male sex, which would basically translate to homosexuality, is never used doesn't bother you? The fact that Paul decided to make up a word instead of using a known word doesn't bother you?
The Greek word ARSENOKOITAI is a combination of the words ARSEN = “male”; and KOITUS = “sexual copulation," which literally means “male sexual relations.” I've heard some on Cafemom claim that Paul 'made it up' but ARSENOKOITAI but is found in classical Greek literature many years (centuries) before and after Paul used it: Revenue Laws of Ptolemy Philadelphus, Anthologia Palatina, Catalogus Codicum Astrologorum Graecorum, Sibylene Oracles, and Polycarp to the Philippians.

Did you know this is almost exact to the Bible?? My brother is a religious philosopher and says the two books are very much alike.
