The Bible has NOTHING BAD to say about LGBTQ people or their relationships. It is in fact extremely positive abou them. Please see my profile for my credentials to make this statement. Ladies first. There are no passages anywhere in the Old Testament against Lesbian sex of any kind. Quite the opposite. The Book of Ruth could well be classified as an erotic lesbian romance. Naomi was Ruth's mother-in-law and the two clearly loved each other deeply. Eventually Ruth becomes one of King David's direct ancestors, and Jesus was born into the House of David. So Jesus' earliest known female ancestor was both bisexual and a gentile. Clergy will tell you that it was a 'platonic' relationship. Rubbish. It is what it seems to be, and how could a Platonic declaration of love be used as a husband/wife lovesong at het couples' retreats? See Ruth 1:16-17.
Another objection is that there is no documentation that there were any lesbians in biblical times. In totally patriarchal cultures you expect writing about 'mere' women's business? 😏 The closest we have to the truth is the Symposium by Plato, the story about love told by Aristophanes. It is laugh out loud funny, and very clearly says lesbian and gay relationships were very common indeed, probably outnumbering straight couples about 2:1.
Finally we know that Jewish thinking is against same-sex relationships. I haven't looked into this to see what the reasoning is. Possibly the conviction that the Almighty needs our help. Almost blasphemy that is, but one shared by Muslims and Christians. See God promised Abraham descendents more numerous than the stars in the heavens and the sands on the sea shore. So whatever got in the way of babies, babies, and more babies would be obstructing the will of God.
