Gwyneth Paltrow isn't afraid of speaking out her mind over delicate subjects. The actress, who plays Holly Holliday on season 2 of "Glee", has recently made use of her Goop blog to tackle the issue of gays and religion. In a recent post titled "Homosexuality in the Bible," she questioned whether or not the Bible really condemns homosexuality.

"A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologizing for wishing death on gays from his Facebook page," wrote the 38-year-old. "This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the bible."

"This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgment and separation in our society," the Oscar winner went on to admit. "When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, 'Two mommies? How lucky is she?!' " She concluded the post by writing, "What does it actually say in the bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?"

Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality, Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers and slanderers, nor extortioners and robbers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Amp

My advice would be to read the Bible and get the best tuition there is to get to understand what it really tells YOU. Go onto the internet and 'log' into Chuck Misslers teaching. You will find that a lot of ignorance about the understanding of the Bible will be very superbly dealt with.

Exodus 21:7: "And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do."

Trentoton above mentiones the sale of a 12 year old girl in Leviticus. Perhaps we could know where that is?

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22 ESV

Yeah, it also says you can't eat shellfish and you can sell your daughter at the tender age of 12 in Leviticus.
